texture swatch 1

For a couple of years now I have been trying to get up the courage to make myself a sweater but lets face it me, depression, and multiple pieces that must match each other in gauge meant it was not going to happen.

This year I really looked at this pattern. The Follow-the-Leader-Aran Knitalong is so prettty and it turns out this beautiful cable sweater pattern is knit in ONE PEICE! YIPPIE! I love cables.

Then I reread the instructions and there is this line something like pick a texture pattern and knit a gauge swatch...

HUH pick a texture pattern with no way of knowing how it will look in MY yarn for MY sweater no way. So begins the story of my swatch.

I think that is the best part of FLAK. You get to pick your own texture patterns, your own cables. Everything is just a suggestion, or you can knit it as she shows. The entire project is brilliant.
