Swatching is growing on me, I have to admit. I love playing around with stitch patterns and swatching delicious yarns like this Pepperberry Cashmere DK. Heidi's colors make the think about all of those great 'sweater stacks' they show in J.Crew catalogs, and it makes me want to call her up and order a sweater lot of some luscious color like cherry red or bright orchid just so that I can knit the simplest, most standard pullover ever.
(These aren't for a sweater, but a scarf/cowl thing I'm designing in cream. The weight was just similar enough to do some swatches and fiddle with stitch counts and orientation.)
