Swatch Time

I have my patterns and yarn. Now it's swatch time. I will work up my Make Tracks Cardigan in Gray Berkshire Bulky on size 10.5 needles and The Portland Sweater in Red Combo Rainbow on size 8 needles. I cannot wait to see how the rainbow pattern develops.

VOGUEknitting Fall 2006 arrived today. It's really lovely. I will be checking my stash for sock yarns. I like Meg Swanson's article and I have most of Elizabeth Zimmerman's books and both sets of her VHS tapes. "Knitting Without Tears" took the fear out of knitting for me. More on this issue after I finish reading the patterns.

Have you seen this KAL? It is called Zimmermaniacs.

I joined, but do not yet have any of her books, but I'll get them when I'm in the US.
