This week's stitch patterns were:
1) Ridged Slip Pattern
2) Tucked Stockinette Stitch
3) Gathered Stitch
|Week 25 Swatches|
This slip stitch retains a nice stretch, and is easy to produce. The reverse side is unattractive, but the front is reminiscent of a pretty trellis pattern with much less effort involved.

SWATCH 2: Tucked Stockinette Stitch
Feel free to laugh at this swatch. This is probably my favorite swatch ever. It is so... UGLY! But you can see how much I improved, from the first attempt at the bottom to the last one at the top. I love when I work a swatch and it teaches me that 1) I am not an expert knitter (at all) and that 2) I can improve my skills. Of course, that is why I embarked on this little project.

SWATCH 3: Gathered Stitch
This is one of those stitch patterns that I've always looked at and thought, "I know how to do that." And it's true, of course, but when you actually DO it, it lends a new perspective.

Next week (which may or may not actually be next week) swatches are:
1) Risotto Stitch (reversible)
2) Waffle Stitch
3) Clam Stitch
(For those of you who have just started following my blog, the Super Stitches Knitting Project is something I have been doing since June 2011: Every week I knit 3 swatches from this stitch dictionary to try to increase my competence and experience as a knitter. Eventually the swatches will be sewn into a blanket, but for now they take up room in a closet. At this juncture I am almost a quarter of the way done.)
That's it for today~
