22 january, 2007

Inspiration: Today I was in the mood to play with the square in square motif and ended up with not 1, but 3 swatches.  I do love log cabin knitting!  I'm thinking about combining these swatches into a vertical strip.
Yarn: Rowan's Cotton Glace, Rowan's Wool Cotton, and a few other random things from my stash.       
Needles: US 4
Stitch: Garter Stitch
Techniques: Short Rows, Log Cabin Knitting

(I guess b/c I peruse the blogs early am I never delved deeper into your blog but...) I just noticed this category of Nona's swatches - it's wonderful! I can visualize what you get out of the swatches, just playing around, getting your ideas down, etc. I really like your! take on the log cabin and short row ones - great!

Lol, Nona ~ I know you said that you're aiming for a swatch a day, whatever the size, but I didn't expect to see three today, lol. Go girl!

You've inspired a challenge for myself ~ I must to get my head around this log cabin technique.

Nona's swatches are a delight! Gwyndolyn can't deal with Log Cabin, though. The wonky angles make her nauseous. She apologizes profusely and thanks nona for her excellent work.
