Swatching

I started the Glenesk Sweater swatch. I am holding the darker colors in my left hand-yarn underneath. I think I can get more pop if I hold the lighter colors in my left. I wanted the dark rich blues and greens to dominate, but I also want to see all of the pattern. I am going to do a second swatch before I decide.

I turned the heel of my Hot Sock Socks.

I finished the first welt and knit the first two rounds on my third Sipalu Bag.

I read the entire Tudor Roses book, such interesting historical summaries. The other three sweaters I wish to knit from that book are of course all marked as the most difficult. Requiring Intermediate-Advanced knitting skills and expert finishing. That's never stopped me before. I will most likely attempt one of them when I finish Glenesk, Henry, Leo and Lismore.

Isn't that book amazing? I'm not much of a history buff, but I sat down and read that one cover to cover the first time I saw it. And of course, the sweaters I fell in love with are the more challenging patterns to knit too! I think we have similar tastes. LOL
