Swatching for Flow

Flow Swatch

Berroco Seduce is a very strange yarn. After looking at the thickness of the yarn (skinny!), and the recommended needle size (fat!), I decided I need to swatch... and not only swatch, but wash and block the swatch.

I'm not 100% sure I won't feel naked if I wear this. (Holding it up, I can watch TV through it.) I'll probably need a camisole underneath. (A red one.)

I need to make the swatch a bit longer before washing and blocking. I want to be sure.

Weaving in ends will be entertaining... I'll probably sew ends together using matching thread. I can't imagine them not popping out otherwise.

If it does work, it will be pretty, though.

The flow sweather looks real nice. Like the colour you've chosen.

Thanks. The photo came out a bit dark... it's a nice cranberry red.
