Dream Swatch.....belt!

Now this really was a quicky!

Free Pattern: Dream Swatch by Wendy Bernard at The Garter Belt

Yarn: Knit One Crochet Two "Wick" 53%Soy 47% polypropylene, 1 ball


The yarn was kinda weird but I really like the colors. It was also a little thicker than what the pattern called for but I just decreased the number of stitches by 6 to get it to the width I wanted. And boy, did this yarn bleed onto my bamboo needles!!

And yes, this is my second post today.....it's just that I have so little time during the week. You know the drill.....get home from work, knit, make dinner, knit, watch the Tour de France, knit, go to bed. Priorities, people!

I'm making one, too--in blues and greens. I decreased the same amount because my yarn is too fat. But, so far in Paris it's too hot to knit (!!!) OK, and the other 3 projects I have going are making me feel guilty. ;)

Great job! Looks super as a belt!
