Comments: Today's swatch is brought to you by all the little teeny balls of yarn hidden at the bottom of my miscellaneous left-over wools box.  And by the number 25, which is approximately the number of minutes it too me to weave in all those ends!  :)  But isn't this the coolest stitch?  Ms. Walker suggests working it with two yarns held together, most likely so you have a hope of attaining something resembling afghan size in a reasonable amount of time.  How cool would it be to make this using one of those evolving colour changes where you do a number of ridges with two strands of colour A, thenthe same number of A and B, then B on its own, B and C, C alone, C and D, etc?   Hmm... who do I know that's having a(nother) baby soon?  :)
