I wrapped up my swatching today for the pattern that I am going to make for Katie’s Christmas present. For those that want to know the particulars, here they are:

The pattern is called “Drift” by Nora Gaughan through the Berroco website. I included the download in a previous post I believe. Here is the link to the post on KP:

The yarn suggested was Berroco Vintage in a Dewberry colorway. I found the yarn called for at Little Knits for $6.80 a hank. It retails for $8.50 per hank at Webs. I need 6 hanks. I bought those the other day, and I think they will be delivered this week. 🙂 I am chomping at the bit to get started on this sweater and I hope it goes smoothly throughout the process.

I got gauge with the Vintage in a dark charcoal gray colorway. Someone suggested that I do another 3 swatches in the Dewberry colorway. I can’t say that I will. I will measure WPI and compare to make sure I get the same wraps per inch with both colorways.

For those who are interested in Drift, here are the pictures of same.
