I love the last swatch!

Signed: Your newest fan


I'm not much of a variegated yarn person myself, but I really like the effect you discoverd using the string of purls stitch!


I too like the last swatch. It's very cute!


I use quite a bit of variegated yarns, but often they are a bit "too" variegated. Fun in small amounts but honestly often overwhelming in a full garment. One way I like to use a garish variegated is in borders. A vareigated border in a solid color garment (usually dark) can add sparkle to the whole thing without getting overpowering and also keeping it all simple and straightforward.


I think you should get rid of that *awful* yarn right away! Here's my address . . .


Love it! Like how it shows up against the background knit.


I would like to have the string of purls stitch pattern...can you help? Thank you.
