Yarn doodling again

Twice a year, before the 2 TNNA needlework trade shows, members of AKD get to play with yarn and make swatches for the Great Wall of Yarn display. I request yarns that will show stitch patterns well, and here’s what came this time:

ShiBui Sock (wool) and Dale of Norway Piper (c0tt0n), which said lace to me, FibraNatura Sensational (wool – color is more cranberry) and Mondial Cotton Soft Speciale, both of which seemed better for texture, but I don’t think the printed flecks in the Speciale enhance the pattern – it might have been better in something even simpler!
