With the cuffs finished, my needles were empty (cough, mostly, cough), and I found myself in need of a project. I’d had an idea bubbling away in the back of my mind for a while now, and this seemed like the perfect time to play with it. It required two yarns though, so I knew there would be a fair amount of swatching.
So first came this. Oh, then this.
Um, and then a little of this.
And none of those are quite right. Which is fine, they’re swatches. They’re there to teach me things, not to be perfect. And they’ve taught me quite a lot of things, so they’ve done their jobs well, even if they have all since gone to the great swatch pile in the sky.
They’ve actually taught me enough that I may have just sent a cable on the secret designers’ wire service to one of my favorite yarn folks to see if we can hatch a little plot. Because this will require just the right yarn, and that’s too good an opportunity to pass up!
