Of course, I couldn't resist getting started -- swatches are the perfect thing to work on while you're waiting on a meeting to start or uploading photos into Photoshop for editing.
First up, Blue Jeans. This color is more of a purple than a denim blue, in my opinion, but it kind of reminds me of really faded jeans. I love all of the tonalities in this color -- it's a semi solid that feels fairly solid. I love how it worked up in simple stockinette. Purple isn't really my color, but this is the perfect shade of purple-blue-grey for me to want to make something out of it.
Then the light blue, called Tranquility. This is certainly a tranquil blue -- it reminds me of the most perfect blue sky, completely cloudless. Simple seed stitch for this swatch.
Next up, Baltic Sea. I did this swatch in Hurdle Stitch.
To do this stitch, just cast on a multiple of 2.
Row 1: *k1, p1*
Row 2: *k1, p1*
Row 3: knit
Row 4: knit
Yes, it really is that easy.
