The mittens are Done!

So I finally finished these damned mittens. And a Sock out of malbrigo oh and a hat. I had a busy knitting day. I've gotten it to the point where my professors let me knit in class.

The hat that was and is no more!

So I don't know if people use the term frog to express the fact that they have undone an item. Well this hat is frogged and has been recasted on bigger gauge and more stitches, poor me , my head is very big LOL. I may have more pictures by Monday. I will actually know if it is the correct gauge for my size in the next two or three hours. Thanks for stopping by.

One knitter + boredom = ???

Notice I said "boredom" not "too much time" - there is a difference...

anyway mix the knitting, boredom, 'Harry Potter' and stir well - the story is over here

I still have to weave in some ends...

Swatches

This month I read in two knitting technique books that one should let a knitted gauge/tension swatch "rest" for 24 hours before measuring.

I'm wondering: does anyone do this? I'm always so keen to start working with the new wool that I just jump right in.

I'd fancy knowing your thoughts on this.
