Left diagonal rib
This one is called left diagonal rib in Merino Magic 8-ply, shade 581, 4.5mm needles, 30 stitches cast on. It has more potential than yesterday’s swatch, but still isn’t quite right.
In between knitting swatches and working on the sleeves of the blue jumper, there is much housecleaning and gardening activity. The owners have now listed the house for rent, so I’m chipping away at the end-of-lease cleaning in case we have to show it. Today is cold and rainy so I’m working indoors; fun stuff like washing windows and baseboards and cabinets.
I have an idea for a colourwork swatch and I had a go at starting it, but clearly I don’t know what I’m doing so I have to do some research.
