Masters Monday - 2.13

One more swatch checked off the list. This is #16, another swatch where the knitter picks a cable that will fit into the required dimensions with a minimum of 2 multiples and three repeats and then figures out the gauge (by swatching), makes allowances for the differences in density between the cable portion and the seed stitch border, plans an effective way of dealing with the difference, writes a complete pattern and....

.....yes, still must knit the final swatch. This is cable 16.5 in the "Harmony Guide to Aran Knitting".

A lot of work indeed! But your finished swatches are things of beauty. Maybe when the Masters is done you can put them all together into a Master afghan.

Interesting idea, but I'll probably just keep them in the binders Paula. I'm finding that I refer back to my Level I binder often so I'll likely keep the binders around as part of my reference library.

I'm with Laura. I fall for everything with X's and O's in it. Your swatch looks great!
