Swatching Sunday: a-MAIZing

Today I did a couple of small swatches in SWTC A-MAIZing, made from 100% corn fiber. I'll have a more in-depth review of the yarn later, but I did want to show that I am swatching on Sunday.

I used US size 3 needles from my Boye Needlemaster. The label recommends US size 7 needles to get six stitches to the inch. I think someone at SWTC is smoking crack.

I had to return The New Knitting Stitch Library back to the library, so I'm using Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns. The swatch on the left is "Interchanging Cables" on page 69, and the swatch on the right is the "Mirrored Triangle Stitch" on page 9.
