I re-knit Swatch #2, this time with K1P1 ribbing (previously I had misread the instructions and did K2P2 ribbing– whoops!):
The back of my stockinette isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t have visible ridges, and I think it’ll even out with blocking:
I also made Swatch 14, the cabled swatch:
I think it’s uneven, but it’ll do for now. I probably should have ended after the 4th cable row. Hm. Anyway, this is my first iteration of this swatch. I’m pretty sure I’ll re-do it.
Blue sweater is almost done. I have 11 rows left before grafting the hood together. After that, it’s graft the underarms and cuffs, block and it’s done!
