Saturday Morning Swatching

Wait. You mean you don't wake up early on a Saturday morning and grab the nearest skeins of yarn and needles and start swatching the ideas in your head? Okay, probably not.

And I can't take credit for this idea. A knitting friend showed me a picture of a scarf she found on a website and it started the wheeling turning. I grabbed two balls of +Knit Picks Palette (Marine Heather and Coastal Heather, I think), cast on and started trying out a new pattern.

I'm pleased with the idea, but it definitely needs some refining.

Sneak peak? Sure!

Next plan: try again but using Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport. It's one of my favorite yarns for it's just plain wooliness. (That's a real word.)
