Swatchin' is finished for Pansy

as of late last night with a swish in Dawn dish detergent and being pinned out overnight.
The porch gate provided a light background for these two photos this afternoon. I still haven't planted my pansies since I'm trying to decide the best place for them as the sun is creating long shadows the next few months.

The Brown Sheep Nature Spun fingerling on a 6" Addi circular creates a fairly open swatch with my loose knitting. I really don't want a thick, Winter shawl since my handspun Pi shawl is just that. The swatch is 5.5 inches wide and 6.5" long without blocking it to within a centimeter of its life. It fit on the couch arm cover just perfectly to block and not be disturbed by any furry fiber guard creatures.

There are a couple 'errors' I left in the swatch so they would remind me where I had difficulty making my hands follow what my eyes were reading on the chart.
