Swatches with benefits

Here's the gauge swatch I settled on for the green wool from the Midnight Sheep.

LOVE the colour shifts.

I swatched a lot of stitches for the Thing I'm going to make with this, and none of those swatches made the shape I was going for. But one in particular put an idea in my head for its perfect application, which means I have another Thing to add to my list of Things to design.

I don't think I was ever this creative when I was focused only on writing fiction. Of course, I've never written less fiction, either... h'mmm.
