Comments:  This swatch is GIGANTIC - the photo doesn't convey that very well.  It's 9.5" x 8.5" total - way bigger than most of the other swatches I've made.  I wanted to use up the entire part-skein of yarn I had, and then it conveniently worked out that I only had to do 2 rows of the second pattern repeat to use it all up...  At least it will give some balance to all the itty-bitty swatches I've been making of late! :)
