I am not a big swatcher. When the LYS ordered new yarn for my stocking class, I did need to know if it would work right, so I took a skein to swatch it. To make it more exciting, I decided to fair isle the flower that I drew. Its my first original design. I a quite happy with it. Its a little delicate for the colors that it is done with, I suppose that is why its a trial run. As far as the yarn is concerned - Jamison's Shetland is fine. It makes a nice fabric for stockings, but I still prefer the way that Philosopher's Wool feels in my hands when I knit.
