Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love finding new stitches to practice in this section because once I'm done with the swatches I stitch some together in complementary colors and make a blanket.

I am faced with a conundrum I very much like the colour of the yarn used in the Ridge Stitch Square, as well I like the colour of the darker colour in Diagonal Purls. For a baby though I think I would prefer the white-ish colour for the softer shades...any ideas???
