I imagine the fervor will diminish once I get all the swatches and questions done, because then it's the three projects.
Swatch #2 - Reverse stockinette seam - FINISHED
I'm worried that the purl stitches at the seam look too tight/small.
Swatch #3 - Seed stitch seam - FINISHED
I've never seen seed stitch seamed. It looks OK, if not great, to me.
Swatch #6 - Vertical to horizontal seam - FINISHED
but I want to fix a tiny error:
Swatch #8 - Twisted blended decreases - FINISHED
(no pic yet)
Swatch #10 - CDD decreases - FINISHED
Swatch #11 - Lace swatch #1 (Vertical lace trellis) FINISHED; pattern instructions FINISHED
Swatch #12 - Lace swatch #2 (Star rib lace) FINISHED (but I may re-do it to make the CDDs look nicer)
Swatch #17 - Single rib buttonholes - FINISHED, but I'm not crazy about my ribbing
I also wasn't sure if I spaced these correctly. They're supposed to be 2" apart, which is easy to do when you're doing identical buttonholes, but because the first one is vertical and is about 1/2" long, I wasn't sure how they defined 2" apart. I decided to measure from the start of one buttonhole to the start of the next. I'll explain that in the materials to show that I do know how to measure.
Swatch #21 - Picking up stitches - FINISHED
Bits I've started
Swatch #1 - Stockinette seam - swatches knit, but not sewn
Swatch #4 - Single rib seam - The bane of my knitting existence. Level II will be the level in which I perfect rib selvedges while simulanteously achieving perfect, even rows of rib
Swatch #5 - Double rib seam - 2 swatches knit, each on different size needles to see if I can improve them
Swatch #7 - Horizontal to horizontal seam - one swatch knit
Bits I haven't started at all
Swatch #9 - Twisted full fashioned decreases
Swatch #13 - Lace swatch #3 (undecided)
Swatch #14 - Cable swatch #1 (undecided)
Swatch #15 - Cable swatch #2 (undecided)
Swatch 16a - Cable exercise
Swatch 16b - Cable flare swatch
Swatch #18 - Double rib buttonholes
Swatch #19 - Seed stitch buttonholes
Swatch #20 - Buttonholes spaced evenly
Swatch #22 - Inset pocket
