I have six more swatches to show you today! I told you I was on a roll! 😉
I redid swatch #1 to try to get a tighter cast on edge, and a better looking ribbing. It looks better than my other one, but I may do this one once more to get it just right, we’ll see how I feel.
Swatch 3 is the double decrease of slip one, knit two together, slip one over. I used the Cable Cast On and Sewn Bind Off on this one.
Swatch 4 is the wrong side decrease of SSP. I used the Channel Island Cast On and Interlock Bind Off.
Swatch 5 is the wrong side decrease of p2tog tbl. I used a Picot Cast On and a Picot Bind Off. I’m not sure that I’m 100% happy with this one. I think I’ll do it over to get a neater cast on and bind off – the picots are a bit sloppy in areas.
Swatch 6 demonstrates yarnovers in different situations. I may do this one over again as well, to try to get my decreases to look a little neater, and to try to even the yarnover sizes up.
Swatch 10 is an elongated stitch pattern. I chose ‘Seafoam Lace’ from the Barbara Walker treasuries, but I modified it a bit. I’m not sure if I’m happy with it, so I may do it over again or pick a different pattern to use.
Anyway, I’m still plugging along at a pretty good pace! Now I’m to the swatches that require me to write patterns for them, and come up with patterns, so it’ll be a bit more slow going from now on. I’m really happy with how much I’ve gotten done in the last 3 weeks, though!
So, that’s what I have to show you this week. Hopefully I’ll have lots to show you next week as well! 🙂

Twisted Elongated stitches used to be my signature trick. The Seafoam Waves looks perfect. I will say, and this is absolutely no reflection at all on your skills, I do not care for that Picot Bindoff.
Yeah, I really hate the picot cast on and bind off. I might pick a different set for that swatch, although I really wanted to show a decorative set.
