Level 2: Resubmit #1

Posted by mtmom on April 27, 2009

First swatch to resubmit:  Swatch #4 — Single Rib

Evaluator’s notes:  selvedges are loose and uneven, seam should be tightened to pull more firmly, tails need to be trimmed, tail weaves are too bulky woven down the seam, cast on and bind off are niely done.

I had done and redone this particular swatch several times, and had another one saved that I think may meet the requirements. . . with a few changes.  The edges looked more even to begin with, and I’ve now tightened the seam considerably and redone the tail-weaving to be less bulky. Reblocking for good measure.

Look better now?  Level 2 standards are very high, but I’ve set myself to achieve this level of mastery of my craft.

Next:  Swatch 5 — Double Rib
