swatch: snoqualmie cardigan.


I finally did it. In 2019, I swatched. I swatched this gorgeous baby for my Snoqualmie Cardigan by Michelle Wang (who is a genius, imho), which has been on my list to knit forever.

And in 2019, one of my knitting goals was to swatch. And to swatch regularly for sweaters. I’m so bad about this; and I’m thrilled to be turning over a new leaf to less giving it up to chance and more the perfect fit.

This sweater is slow going because I haven’t had time to concentrate on it. But, it will get some love this weekend, I think.

I’m knitting it in Quince and Co. Osprey in the audouin color; I saw others knit it up with this yarn and I loved the drape on their garments.

Fingers crossed this seamed, robust cabled cardigan is everything I hope for this year.

Holy balls!


I have spent the week getting things organized and swatching for new projects.

Aren’t balls of yarn just gorgeous? I’m thinking of having my photog-ing extraordinaire, Harry S. Cahill, create a series of such yarn ball magic to frame and hang somewhere. They would make beautiful art.

But, off the art, and onto the why. I decided I needed to have snaps of colorway options for various buyers to they can customize items. I’ve already received a few orders from friends…more welcome anytime!
