Master’s Monday 5

Inspired by a friend who is whipping out her swatches with obscene speed, I worked exclusively on my seed stitch this week. (I apologize for the lighting in the photos. It’s gloomy here this morning!)

Here is the blanket square I’m going to send to Maryse:

Here is the alpaca scarf I’m knitting for EZ-E (Isaac will get one, too):

Obsessed? Yes, I was. And here is the resulting seed stitch swatch.

I feel that it’s much better than my past swatches and that once I wet block this sucker, it’ll be even better. Thanks for all the great suggestions. The solution seemed to be to tensioning my yarn around my pinkie finger not once, but twice. This made all the difference in the world. I’m moving on, people.

Swatch 1.

    Good for you. I keep thinking I have to join you on this one… Sigh. Some day. :D
