Swatching Again

Swatching has begun on the Thrummed Mittens.  I may need to go up a needle size before starting actual knitting.  Which means more swatching.
The yarn Lil' Farm Gal picked out is a very soft superwash wool, Liberty Wool.  She liked the turquoise, but this is a very multi-colored yarn.  I think the thrums will be neutral enough. The wool I rolled them from is just to the left of the balls of yarn here.
Of course, I may find my knitting time getting interrupted.  I needed a cuddle break today.  I can see that being Grammy will cut into knitting time.
But well worth it, I think.
