Swatching day

I finished my editing job last night and am all set to knuckle down with my needles and a few different yarns for a lovely afternoon of swatching.

I'm getting to like a good swatchfest, now that the gauge part is incidental to trying out new stitches. I love being able to find out whether or not they look good, suit the yarn and the needle size, and will make me happy over the course of the project. More than once I've been very grateful for the chance to jettison a stitch that was more hassle than it was worth, in favour of something fun.

So I'm swatching today, and probably enjoying cup after cup of hot tea with lemon and honey in it until my cold is good and gone, and hopefully tomorrow I will have pictures to post! of swatches - not tea. Unless somebody wants pictures of tea, in which case, let me know.
