Swatching for Fun

I know the title of this blog sounds strange, but it’s true. I knitted up a swatch just for fun!

I’ve been drawn to the pocket design on the tweed jacket featured in the Fall/Winter 2010 issue of Debbie Bliss knitting magazine. (Don’t ask me why. I stopped questioning my own logic and thought process a long time ago.) So, I stash dived until I found some leftover yarns that I could use to knit up my own little version.

As you can tell, I went my own direction with the colors used and I really like the way it turned out. I’m thinking it would look even better with a brighter punk-rock-pink instead of the dusty rose pink that I used.

Naturally, as I was knitting this I thought of how I could translate this pattern for a sock design. Hmmmm. . .
