Swatching for Chuck

Hi all - Thanks Bettina for hosting, I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's progress :) I love this pattern - Eunny's pretty amazing. I have swatched and am ready to go! I'm also working on the Anemoi mittens, you can see my swatch for those on my blog too. These patterns are my first foray into stranded colorwork and I'm so excited. And, this is my first KAL too - Hi to the other new folks too! Anyway, here is my swatch - I played with the cables a bit just for fun :) I plan to get started on the first sock sometime this week.

Hello all!

This is my first KAL, and I'm excited! I learned to knit this summer, so this is going to be a bit of an adventure for me, but I like a challenge. I got my yarn, black for the background and green for the cables. I still need to pick up needles this week.

The next trick is figuring out how to sneak knitting back in with my new class schedule. These seem maybe too involved to knit during lecture.
