I’ve seen some pretty borrrring ideas for what to do with swatches. What do you do with yours? Have you seen some nifty things you can do with them online?
This is the place to post em…
I’ll start. In SnB: The Knitters Handbook the first swatch you’re told to make is saved for a sunglass cleaner. Debbie tells us to toss it in our purse, because as we all know sunglasses never get dirty in the house. Duh.
So, Re: with your fantastic ideas. For those of you who do not save your swatches and are thrifty knitters who frog the swatch and use it in the project you are swatchin’ for, tell us your swatch horror stories, if you have any.
Another idea: new knitters can make a “knitting notebook” or Touch N’ Feel Stitch Dictionary ™. Just put your swatches in clear, reusable envelopes. Punch holes in the envelopes and stick 'em in a 3-ring binder. Add a sheet of paper with notes on how you made your swatch, yarn info, etc. Might also be cool to name that stitch.
23 to go…who’s next?
