The Afghan That Was Created From Our Swatch Experiment

June 20th, 2008

Pin It

In last week’s post I talked about how we design based on experimenting with swatching. Last week I shared a peek into the process by which we decide on color sequencing.

Here is the afghan we created with the new Vanna’s Choice colors that was based on that swatch.

    Greetings, Jaremy!

    I loved what you had to say about male knitters & crocheters, and I want to share a conversation I had recently with my office-mate at the private Catholic high school where I teach. Father Jim is (obviously) a priest, our school diving coach, an avid bike rider (an average Saturday jaunt for him is 120 miles), and 65 years old. He often admires the knitting I do while we are sitting through interminable staff meetings together.

    One day, as he was leaving to attend what would likely be a 3- or 4-hour coaches’ meeting, I suggested, “Maybe you should take up knitting to pass the time.” He laughed and said, “Wouldn’t the other coaches just have a field day with that!” To which I replied, “Actually, Father, I think you are just about cool enough to pull it off!”

    Here’s to our pioneering men! Knit on, dudes!
