1) Flags and Stripes Panel
2) Simple Star Motif
3) Broken Chevron Panel
This week I had a bit of a setback because I lost the Flags and Stripes panel. That was frustrating because I know it was right there and then it was just missing. And not, like, under the couch missing. It has disappeared from existence. I was pretty upset about having to go back and redo that swatch before starting on the Broken Chevron.
Anyways, I got them all done and took pictures yesterday. Which is a good thing because I woke up this morning and my camera was dead!
|all three swatches. Can you see a star? yeah. me neither.|
SWATCH 1: Flags and Strips Panel
The accursed one. When I finished with the redo, I stuffed it in my pocket so it wouldn't disappear. I'm telling you, one day I'm going to find it and I'm going to be like arghghghghhg!

I guess the point it to be kind of zig-zaggy, but I don't like that purl row that interrupts it. So, the "stripes" part. It was a pretty easy knit, though, and the repeat was only 12 rows. So it wasn't my least favorite swatch ever. Or wouldn't have been, if I hadn't had to knit the damn thing twice.
SWATCH 2: Simple Star Motif
I was all excited about this swatch because I thought it was cute in the book. Which, it pretty much is. In real life, though, it looks more like a marijuana leaf.

SWATCH 3: Broken Chevron Swatch.
Thank Bob for this swatch. Without this one, this whole Super Stitches week was just a fail.
|Broken Chevron Swatch- RS|
|Broken Chevron Swatch- WS|
Anyways, that's it for this week.
Next week's swatches (and the last in the panel section, thank goodness) are:
1) Moss Zigzag Panel
2) Stockinette Stitch Flags Panel
3) Double Herringbone Panel
Of which the herringbone looks most promising. As well as useful in the gansey situation.
Oh, and I've been working on my hexipuffs; I made it to 43.
