Swatch is of the essence


I’ve spent the evening making a huge swatch. In the play my theatre group are rehearsing I’m playing a young, sightly nerdy man who is in search of a wife and has a small hang-up on his dead mother. There is something sweet over him and it’s obvious that he needs a vest and not just any vest, a handknit vest. Lucky for him I’m a knitter and so I’m making him one. I only have a few weeks to finish it so time is of the essence. As soon as the swatch dries I will cast on. Let’s hope this is a quick knit.
