In which swatching is discussed
While it may not seem like much of an achievement to most, I successfully swatched with the Habu from my last post. Thing is, I rarely swatch. I tend to just guess needle size, cast on, and go. It works out fine most of the time, but when working on a new idea, I do like to pretend to do it right once in a while. Now, I'm taking a few days to actually mull over the swatch before leaping into a project. Question is, cowl or stole? It's a fairly light, surprisingly structural fabric, and much softer than it's pre-soak state. I think it would be stunning in a stole, but in the interests of actually finishing it, I think a cowl would be a good choice. What do you all think? Which pattern would you be more interested in seeing?
