a little while ago, i found this book with knitting stitches on the fleamarket. i was thrilled, because it contains 400 or more knitting stitches! i wanted to start knitting immediately!
so i came up with the idea of doing a weekly knitting project in 2012. in this project, i will (try to) knit one swatch a week. the book is divided into categories (purl/knit, cables, ajour,...), and each week i will knit one swatch out of each category. this way i can improve my knitting and learn new stitches on a weekly basis. the project will be called the swatch-a-week challenge, and here's my first swatch:
no. 1: knit/purl #1
i added a little label where i write some info about the swatch. :) this stitch is called "piqué-triangels", it looks good on both sides and it's really easy to remember. it also looks far more difficult than it is, so it was a nice stitch to start the project with!
when i finish, i want to select the prettiest swatches and make a pillowcover with them. :) i'll probably coordinate the colors a bit, but i don't want to buy new yarn so i'm using whatever i have lying around. (which is a lot) so, until then, you may be expecting one swatch a week, for 52 weeks long! :)
