Yesterday I began a swatch on US 6 needles and included the other panels. I’m liking the stitch definition a bit better with the smaller needles but the truth will be in the blocking. I’ve also started a similar swatch with my Black Water Abbey 2 ply on US 7 needles.

Swatching? Blocking? Blocking swatches? I feel like I’m finally becoming a ‘real’ knitter.
