Knittah Begins

This is the beginning of Swatchy. The flash kind of washed out his head. He is being knit from the top down on size 1 needles with fingering weight yarn. His head is mint green, the body will be variegated brown, his pants blue and his shoes black. For all but the body, I used Patons Grace. For the body I used some leftover Trekking XXL. The body starts with knit 1, purl 1 ribbing, and then increases and switches to seed stitch. Everything else is done in stockinette.

Swatchy's looking good so far, this looks like it'll be a fun blog to watch.

After Swatchy explores Rhinebeck and Canada, any chance he'll want to take some shorter trips elsewhere? Like, say, Indiana?

Ooooh, Swatchy's coming to life before our very eyes!

Swatchy wants to go everywhere he can! However, he's somewhat limited by my budget. I'll drop you a line if we manage to be in the area. :)
