Because I’ve only got 2.5 balls of yarn left to finish Something Silver, I realized this would be a good time to start swatching for the V-neck Elizabeth Zimmermann sweater I plan on knitting next. I wanted to see if I could use some of the pink yarns that I love so much with the green. My fave color combo!
What you see above is a knitted swatch. I KNOW! It looks just like crochet! English Rose Tweed sounded so nice, the reality is more granny square tweed than anything. Some of my other stitch swatches were unbelievably awful. This was the pick of the litter. Worry not, they’re all frogged into the ether.
I think I may just forget the pink idea and knit a plain green sweater with no faux crochet elements. Or may just sneak in a small stripe or two to satisfy my Lilly Pulitzer moment.
