Hello, I am a swatch

…at some of what I’m up to lately: reknitting my Estonian-style mittens, writing the pattern as I go, and swatching with some St-Denis Nordique, for a new yoked sweater design.

I’m quite tied up on the teaching front at the moment, between the writing tutoring, the ESL tutoring, and taking over on the lecturing front in the class I’m co-teaching, so this blog may be a bit quiet for awhile until I catch my breath a bit. I hope November is treating you all well so far!

  1. ooooh, pretty! and whoa! that sounds like quite a workload. even if there’s no time for blogging, i hope you find time to knit here and there!

  2. The yoke is so intruiging — I love the mix of the green strands and the textured ‘berries’- can’t wait to see what it becomes. When you have time, of course…..hate it when life gets in the way of knitting!

  3. Ooh, that swatch is very… oh bummer, I just looked up and saw that someone has already used the word “intriguing”, perhaps I shall use fascinating instead. That swatch is very fascinating! I can’t wait to see more.

  4. Oooooh, that is one sexy swatch. I’m definitely planning on trying Nordique out with some of my Christmas money. Good luck with all the busy!
