I meant to post some of these on Monday, but I never got around to blocking them until today, so I’ll post them as FOs today instead!
I have a LOT of MK swatches done! Yay! And I only have 4 swatches left! Double Yay!
I think this one is acceptable – I may have to lightly block the edges again to get the picots to stay down, though! (I ran out of pins this time! Hazards of blocking 6 swatches at once.)
This one is much better than my previous one!
I’m going to need to do this one again. My ribbing is uneven – I have elongated stitches in spots. But I have the pattern written out and it’ll give me a chance to double check that the pattern is correct.
I think I need to do this one again as well. My selvedge edges are really sloppy. 😦 I might pick a different stitch pattern to try out, we’ll see.
This one is alright, I think. I might need to lightly block it again when I have more pins, though. I really need to not block so many swatches at once!!
Swatch #17: (Charted Intarsia)
This is my third attempt at a good intarsia swatch! (I really hate intarsia.) I think (hope) this one is acceptable. I really don’t want to have to do it over again.
Anyway – that’s what I have to show you today! I’ve started the research for my research papers, and I got a bunch of colors of yarn to start experimenting for my sweater.
Happy Knitting!! And be sure to check out Tami’s Amis for more FO Friday posts!
