Slip Stitches

Slip stitch slipover from Stitchcraft August 1951
I've been badly neglecting my slip stitch collection and was reminded when browsing through my vintage magazines.  This caught my eye.  Quite an impressive effect.

I must have a try at swatching this one.

The socks to match

i have tried to be a good knitter and do the swatch thing. I have challenged myself with sweaters, socks, cables, and lace, but I just can't seem to get the swatch thing down. I know it seems like such a simple concept, but I can never make my swatch come out to the right number of stitches. I think that frustrates me more than having the garment not come out exactly the way it should have.

I love what you do with swatches. They are each like little pieces of artwork.
