I am so proud of this piece.  Recently I have seen some projects similar, but I had never seen one prior to starting this.  I love that I used old swatches that could have easily been trashed.  I like that I learned some new embroidery stitches and embellished with scrumbles and beads as well.  I like that I will be warm all winter.  Here are some overall pictures.  I will put the detailed pictures on Flicker for anyone who is interested.  I hope this will inspire some of you to do something similar and to share it with me.  Thanks for looking at my pics.

  1. Wonderful! This makes me want to swatch!

  2. There aren’t words to say just how much I love this. From now on, I swatch with a purpose – to collect enough to make my own Winestains… (Mine might be Martinistains, but I’m sure you don’t mind.)

    Lovely makes me want to start doing the gauge swatch..

  4. I loved seeing this in person at the knitting guild. What a great idea for swatches!

  5. Jane, what a piece of art! I can’t tell you how happy this piece makes me. Wine can be quite the muse!
