Feel like swatchin’?

I’d like to announce a project that you should participate in. It’s called the Walker Treasury Project (WTP for short).

This was all my idea and it’s the big KAL that I hinted at in my 2007 Resolutions post.  Please, please get involved!  (Also, disclaimer – I have two co-admins right now and they’ve come up with some amazing ideas and stuff for the blog – collaborations are the best!)

“Every knitter knows that Barbara Walker’s Treasuries are indispensible. We use them constantly for designing, for help with a difficult pattern, and for pure inspiration. Sometimes, though, the mostly black-and-white and small pictures keep us from seeing the full potential of a pattern. That’s where the Walker Treasury Project comes in. We’re gathering high-quality, color photos of all the patterns in all the Treasury books and putting them on the internet as a visual aide to this wonderful collection. Help your fellow knitter by choosing a pattern from a particular book, working up a nice big swatch in a light-colored yarn, and posting it to our blog. We can help you label and categorize everything. Also, keep in mind that we’re not posting the pattern, just the picture!”

    What a great idea! I’d like to do a swatch for your KAL! How do we know what pattern was already swatched and is on your blog? (I know, right now it’s easy, but after a while, there will be quite a bunch). Are you going to catalog it into the different books? I someone would like to see a certain pattern from book X on page Y, how do we find it on the blog. Anyway.

    Hey, Nicole, thanks for the invite! Unfortunately (gasp!) I don’t own any of the Barbara Walker books, so I fear I’d just be dead weight. I’ll let you know if that changes. This is a great idea!

    well clear their motive, and that is also happening with
    this paragraph which I am reading at this place.
