29 january, 2007

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   
Needles: US 5
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!
