This morning Snickers inspected my latest effort in the Swatching Coxswain event for the Ravellenic Games:
Stitch Pattern: Lattice Lace (April 12 from 365 Knitting Stitches a Year Perpetual Calendar)
Yarn: Quince and Co. Tern, 75 percent wool; 25 percent silk, in the Seagrass colorway
Needles: US4 for the first two repeats and US3 for the last three
I like using this yellow towel (woven by my sister Jenny) for blocking small items. Its gridlines make it easy to keep edges straight. This swatch is wider at the bottom than the top because I changed the needle size partway through—I wanted to see the difference that would make in the look of the lace. I think I prefer the firmer fabric produced with the smaller needle, but I'll decide when the swatch is dry.
I need to swatch at least two more stitch patterns to reach the finish line for this event. But I have plans for quite a few more than that!
How's your Ravellenic Games knitting or spinning or crocheting going?
