Ariann Swatch

Chic Knits Ariann Swatch

There are alternate yarn choices here, but I chose Cascade 220 because it's economical and knits up so well. I visualized this sweater in a green, brown or charcoal and color 9338 is a bit of all three; it's easily something I can wear with black or brown.

I worked yesterday and noticed we have some great new books -- including Yarn Play, by Lisa Shobhana Mason (designer of the Stitch 'n Bitch "Big Bad Baby Blanket"). The photos are wonderful (check out the photo styling - I love it).

Knit 2 Together was in as well. I was reading the review here yesterday morning, so it was great to see it (just one copy?) at the store. I'd definitely read it but I'm not sure if I would buy it for the patterns.

And it's the first day of SOCKTOBERFEST. (Over 1400 1500 participants? Holy cow!) I have something planned for Socktoberfest that I'm hoping to accomplish this month. Stay tuned.

If you aren't reading Bonne Marie's sidebar, you might have missed this:


Yarnplay is definitely intriguing me - the cover sweater looks very cool.

Oh, you've started Ariann! Wonderful. I can't wait to see it worked up. Such a beautiful design!

that is one gorgeous swatch! i love the colors and the perfect stitches. Can't wait to see that pattern worked up in that color, Janet.

Have fun knitting Ariann.


I couldn't resist... I bought the pattern too! I probably won't start on it until much later, but just knowing I have it makes me happy! Happy Socktoberfest ;)

Ooooh! Love the color!!!

That is totally the color I want my Ariann to be!!! I love your swatch!!
