My first swatches!! This is so much fun! The swatch on the left (100% wool) is what happens when you dive in to make the swatch before listening to the instructions :-) The swatch on the right (70% acrylic 30% wool) is after watching Patty's great instructions. Can you see the differences?

It was really educational making the same swatch twice with two different yarns. Both yarns are considered #4 Medium, and both were knit on a US 9 (5.5 mm) but they look and feel entirely different (allowing for not following directions on the first swatch). The Vickie Howell has more of a roving feel to it vs. the well defined plies of the Lion Brand.

Very impressive. Can't wait to see more.
