I'm doing a gauge swatch with a knitting sheath and some US1 needles. In keeping with some good advice, the swatch is a hat. Like, if you're making a swatch anyway, why not make it something useful?
I just came across this article. It made me smile. I immediately thought to share it with our community here. Maybe somebody else has posted it but if not I figured that some of the family here would enjoy it and maybe contribute.
Been knitting flat out to get this finished for Thanks Giving this weekend as my sister in law will be visiting. Made three pies and a doz butter tarts today so have a jump on dinner for Sunday, we are having a dozen or so family to the farm (Iknow have 7 chickens) so I call it "The Farm" lol.
