I finished my first swatch last night and blocked it this morning. I think it sucks 9 kinds of ass (to quote ColoradoKnits). I am going yarn shopping with G on Saturday so I might see if they have some other worsted weight yarn I can snag and make another set of swatches out of it. Of course I have already made 3 different sets of swatches with 3 different kinds of yarn and not been happy with them. But I am mailing them in July 1 whether I like them or not! At least that will be forward progress. Film (as it were) at 11.
Here is my swatch. It will have to be redone.
