Comments: I LOVE this swatch!  :)  That's helped by the fact that this is my absolute favourite yarn at the moment - its a 2-ply pure wool in a heavy DK/light worsted weight, which comes from Sunset Farms Studio on Salt Spring Island, one of the little islands just of the coast of Vancouver.  The wool is so soft (especially after a bath in Eucalan!), it comes in great colours, and just look at how well it shows off cable stitches!  I've made 2 pairs of socks for Mike out of this yarn and he still says they're his favourite socks.  Having seen this lovely little cable swatch, I am so making myself a cabled jumper from this yarn!   :)

  1. The stitch definition on this is crazy awesome and amazing given how soft and luxurious the yarn is!
