Oh, swatching, you are not always our favorite, but you give us lots of good information (sometimes). Today we talk a little bit about different kinds of swatches, including my favorite: the swatch that is also a thing (like the Enwreathed Cowl or one of two sleeves). I also talk a little bit about needles and how you may only need one to knit a sweater (that’s how I do it, anyway).

 

Remember: Episode Five: LIVE SHOW will be here before we know it, so start asking your questions now, and I will answer them on the air in a couple of weeks. The best way to ask is by hitting reply on a newsletter email message, but you can also leave comments on episode pages on YouTube or on posts on Instagram/Twitter or on my Ravelry group.

Yarn info:

-Biches et Buches Le Petit Lambswool https://www.bichesetbuches.com/ - the original Enwreathed Pullover and Cowl were knit in the MC: Bleu Noir Fonce (dark blue black) and CC: Gris Clair (light grey)

-Manos del Uruguay https://www.manosyarns.com/ - Kathleen will be using Allegria in Euphoria for her CC on The Heart Wants Pullover

-Swans Island Company https://swansislandcompany.com/ - Kathleen will be using Swans Island Pure Blends Fingering in Oatmeal, which has been discontinued, but Swans Island Sterling Fingering is a great substitute with the same 85% Merino/15% Alpaca fiber content
