I actually did the Catkin swatch exactly as directed.  The result: my swatch is a teeny bit oversized, but going down a needle size would make it too tight.  I'll just try to knit a bit more tightly.  Except - not while I'm knitting the "catkin" -- the almost-circular section.  I need to strand a bit more loosely there, to prevent the pucker

Colorwise -- I love this!

P.S.  I'm pretty sure I said I was finishing the Hedgerow socks before I began anything else, but then I remembered that I'm going to be traveling next week, and the socks will be perfect travel knitting.  Therefore, I was forced to begin Catkin!

That really is a cool pattern. And I agree -- your colors are awesome. Can't wait to see this develop.

Okay, NOW I HAVE to pick my colors.
I keep dithering over using stash, or ordering up something new... or. stash... or..
