Nice swatch! ( Did that sound dirty? LMAO )I'm working on a swatch like that too. Except, today after I had numerous garter stitch and stockinette stitch rows....I started on ribbing. Well, apparently I wasn't paying attention, because even though I was always holding the yarn right, I wasn't necessarily do the knit and purl stitches. Anways, I got frustrated, and ended up ripping everything out...ARGGGG LOL
I've started again though, and hope to post a pic soon After I get these basic stitches down, I'd like to try the whole joining new colors/new yarn and knitting with different colors. Looks real hard at this point though.
I'm stumped as what to do for my first project too LOL
