Notes about the yarn:

It feels crunchy and shiny straight off the cone. Not a good combination. It’s thick and thin with some pigtails (at least on the outside top end of the cone. I don’t really have much of an opinion about the yarn beyond it’s a nice string.

Notes about the swatch:

I was going to knit different swatches so that I could use different needles and compare apples not apples and oranges with a mixed sampler swatch. But I was curious how the knit fabric would feel so I jumped halfway. I thought I knew how I’d knit this up and now that I’m examining this steam blocked swatch I’m very unsure of my direction.
