Hold your horses, hold you horses! Before telling me that this is a sock and not a swatch let me remind you of the definition of a swatch. The 2nd definition of swatch in the dictionary is, "a representative portion; a sample". So, today's swatch is a representative portion, a sample of a sock. One that highlights the different parts of a sock -- the ribbing, leg, heel flap, heel turn, gusset, foot, and toe -- and one that I'll use when I teach tonight's sock class.
|Yarn:||Jo Sharp's DK wool in various colors
|Stitch:||1x1 ribbing and stockinette stitch
|Techniques:||Knitting in the round; basic top down sock with basic heel and toe.|

Cool swatch. Looks at lot like the one in this post: http://fibergal.blogspot.com/2007/01/lost-in-socks.html and I do love socks done in pieces. In fact, all your swatches are just too inspiring. Wish I could do this too!

Ooooh... I don't know Nona, it looks like a bit of a deviation to me, lol.
I've been meaning to ask you what will you do with your swatches and how do you store them?
1 more day ~ then you're on the the second month. Good going Nona!
