Snowcatcher has requested that I try to have more WIP pictures up, so here we go.
After all that Christmas and WWFY knitting, I desperately need my own knits. Is it irresponsible to go and do something else when not quite finished with Christmas projects or WWFY demands? Yes. But this project has been calling me ever since I bought the yarn and it will not be denied! Haha.
10 skeins of Merino Style in Silver, plus my itty-bitty swatch of the cable pattern. I screwed up, so I gave up. Frankly, I really needed to try to knit it in the proper yarn, anyway. So I started swatching away on my size 5s, since that is what the label says I should use, but the knit felt… too dense, I think. Plus, the cable pattern was coming up too thick for my tastes as well. So I stopped to soak and block it. Top is before being washed, the bottom is of it still wet.
The cable pattern still feels too thick, but I do have hopes for the stockinette to feel less dense, especially after the conditioner. Now to go work on a non-selfish project while waiting for this swatch to dry.
