Swatching


Although I'm still knitting away at the Matilda & Tillie pattern revision samples, I do have a swatch going. It's nice to have something I can just pick up and knit away at without thinking too much! The yarn is Berroco Remix, which Mom used for a baby sweater (pattern: Arshile, color: Smoke - kits available through WEBS). I'm swatching for an Ingenue sweater (from Wendy Bernard's Custom Knits book). In the spirit of practicing what I preach, I bought the book from the same yarn shop I bought the yarn from (Webs - yarn.com), and while I went into the transaction willing to pay full price, I saved $5.50 off the MSRP because the Webs discount system now includes books! I would have purchased it from a bookstore here, but none had it in stock.

Remix is a worsted/10 ply yarn made of 100% recycled fibers, a mix of nylon, cotton, acrylic, and silk (you can read more about it on Berroco's info page for Remix). It is soft and pleasantly nubby and I'm enjoying knitting with it.
