Nittany Knits

Thursday, November 08, 2007

The most unthinkable thing has happened... I have swatched not once, not twice, but three times for my new duster. That's not the only thing... I have achieved the correct gauge. Good thing since I had to use size 7 instead of size 10 needles to get it!

What has caused me to use two words that I find to be knitting cuss words? Vanity!

I want this garment to look Fabu! Therefore, I am sucking it up and swatching and gauge watching and all the other things knitters do when they want their sweater to actually fit for a change.

Shocking, I know.

All of this is due to my new Monday knitting policy. Yeah, me.

Happy knitting


  • You go swatch queen. It'll be worth it for the fit of that Gaughn duster.
