Remember a couple months ago when I showed off the knit swatches my knit night crew made for my friend Tara as a wedding present? We all loved them so much that we organized a swap!
There are between 9-11 knitters in the swap (some people are being indecisive!) so we are all knitting up between 9-11 swatches – 1 stitch pattern with different yarns, or 1 yarn in different stitch patterns. Then we are going to have a party where we swap our swatches and put them all together! So we all have matching knit swatch wall art for our homes. Cute right?
So far I’ve got 6 swatches finished, three in the Chevron and Feathers and 3 in the Ostrich Plume Panel. I just dug through my 101 Stitches to Knit by Harmony Guides and dug out a few lacy patterns I liked. I found some old (and now discontinued) Kitchen Sink Dyeworks Luxe Merino Fine in the stash and it’s looking SO GOOD! I can’t wait to stretch these around the hoops.
These are great on the go projects! Since I’m working through the Holla Knits Accessories patterns, it’s a lot of knitting I need to do glued to the pattern. But since football season started I’ve been grabbing a swatch on my way to the bar and it’s worked out great!
Our swap isn’t until Nov 1st, but I know I’ll have these done way before then. More soon!Pin It
