And with that comes the post I was supposed to do yesterday (but didn't because I was too high on hippo-makin').
Section three is the Ribbing section. Which means the first three swatches are boring to look at as well as boring to knit.
Yeah. Like I don't knit socks all the time.
SWATCH 2: Knit Two, Purl Two Rib
(I can knit and purl.)
SWATCH 3: Seeded Rib
Getting into the fancy stuff!
Anyway, I think this stitch pattern would work great with a hat as well, or pretty much any knit where you would like a little stretch but would like it to look a little more exciting, or have gotten sick of k2 p2 ribbing.
So for the next 6 Sundays I'll have three ribbed swatches to boast. I've been looking through the chapter today and there are a few that I'm pretty excited about, like the Raised Eyelet Rib and the Double Rickrack Rib.
Next week's are:
1) Cable Eyelet Rib
2) Spiral Rib
3) Diagonal Rib
Of which the Cable Eyelet looks the most fun, and the Diagonal Rib looks the least (probably because I've knitted 17" legwarmers using that stitch pattern). So that's it for my wannabe-Sunday Monday post.
(P.S. Wondering what I named my hippo? After a wonderful suggestion by Evelyn she has been donned Harriet. She's currently decorating my dresser and I can't wait to make her some friends!)
