We all know we are supposed to swatch when we knit; I usually hate it because I'm so anxious to get started on a project. But this time I'm glad I did:
here is a mini-Andean cell phone case pattern done up in fine Alpaca

and I discovered while the wool is soft, it's not "lofty enough" for what I like for stranded mittens, so I don't need to get any more.

I love this, as the Andean Textiles are a favorite thing with me. I have been working on making patterns for my "rag" knitting from the motifs.
