    Excellent swatch! What a wonderful pattern.

    This is actually a rather creepy looking swatch that makes me think of Halloween projects. Weird! It’s nicely done, of course, but the design is quite freaky! It makes me think of a thick forest with twisted limbs that look like hands trying to grab me. Perhaps I have an active imagination? :)

    Hrm. I think it’s absolutely lovely. It looks more like tree roots to me! The way the cable twists change each repeat is great, too.
