To save time, take time to check the gauge

And I actually did, but not well enough. After seeing someone who went up a needle size complain on Ravelry that it was too large, when my gauge came between two needles, I went for the one called for in the pattern... This is the result. The back, done in the size described, tight and narrow, the same width as a front panel done properly in a larger needle. Back frogging to come...


  1. I'm always tempted to not swatch before knitting - it seems like such a waste of time but I know it will pay off in the end! It takes some self control though - when all I want to do is start on the project!

  2. I haven't been sewing very long but I already know that swatching is important---I still hate doing it though. I want to jump right into the project!
