Swatching (really!) for my Socktoberfest sock
This really soft yarn contents 45% cotton, 40% wool and 15% polyamide.
I really like the bright colours in it and the stripes are variable. Because these red, white (to be honoust: creme and white)and blue (and grey-ish) are also the national colours overhere, I call this sock-to-be: The Dutch Sock.
As you can see in this swatch, I'm "playing" with ribs. To decide what it will be, I need more time.
This is the first time I'm really swatching for a sock. And I like it (sorry, for the non-swatchers)!
And there is my first sweater, making it in Cecilia by Phildar (see previous posts). Pic's will follow later.
There's also my latest project: Ballee.
That's the name of my newborn weblog. But that needs more time....
I will be knitting in Den Bosch on the 15th October, and here in Rotterdam
See you overthere! And for all you out there, non-Dutchies: come over here, The Netherlands in Fall is beautifull!
