Here are some details about my project:
Category Knitting

What materials did you use? I changed all of my colors & yarn to Debbie Bliss Mia yarn. This is 50% wool & 50% cotton. This yarn has a great tactile sense on your hands with good stitch definition.

What are you most proud of? The patterns formed are just amazing-to see that I chose the colors and made the material (swatch) by myself!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When washing the swatch, make sure it is square; I didn't do this and the row count is shorter on the top and bottom. The stitch count is 25 1/2 for 4 inches.
