Swatching

... for no reason other than being interested in how it turned out. It's a stitch pattern from the book of Japanese knitting stitches and it reminded me a little of Art Deco botanicals. Or am I thinking William Morris? One of those two. (I'm sure they're miles apart, artistically speaking, but it's 11:30 p.m. and I can't be bothered to go research this right now.)
It reminded me of some of the decor I've seen in "American Bungalow" magazine and the like.
Anyhoo.
It was also one of the simpler charts to read, with none of these little fish leaning to the left or right that indicate some kind of twisted stitch.
Here it is. Bamboo blend sock yarn. If it weren't getting late, I'd pick out another pattern to play with.
