Plays with Yarn

A place where I can ramble about all things knitterly.

A Blocking Story (unfinished) <--- There are pictures here.

Started swatching for the DNA scarf this morning waiting for the bus. I've only done 5 rows of the seed stitch, but already I'm not sure how I feel about the yarn I chose. It's awfully fuzzy, and I'm wondering how the cables will end up. Well, I suppose that's why we swatch, right? (Okay, so I've never swatched for a scarf. I wasn't going to for this one, but I decided that I wanted to have an example of "look what I can do" so I decided to do a cable repeat as a swatch for myself.) We'll see.

I need to make socks. Perhaps I'll start on Wendy's toe-up pattern at some point.
