"Elves"- The Knitted Baby Blanket- Swatching

I am swatching. Yay! My first time ever!! :)

I have never been a fan of swatching, so for knitting I've never done it. This time, however, is a different story. I have an afghan design in my brain that is dying to come out as the companion blanket to my "Faeries" crocheted blanket from last year and the pattern stitches I am using, I have never done before. I don't think I've ever shared "Faeries" with you before because I was going to seek publication for it...and it's been on the back burner for about 6 months...

Anyway, we've moved on to "Elves", the knitted companion blanket to "Faeries". It is going to be earthy and neutral. Oh! and it's a baby blanket!

So there (up there^) is the beginning. :) It is making me happy.
