New WIP!!

I ended up casting on Hug by Deb Hoss. I read through the pattern and it sounded a little involved so I figured I better cast it on right away. And no, I didn’t swatch which was probably stupid and will bite me in the ass at some point. I figured since it starts with just a section I’d knit that and see how I’m doing. In the past knitting a small (4 or 6 inch) swatch hasn’t worked because, as I’m sure you know, swatches lie. While I have time I’m going to just throw caution to the wind and see what happens. Wish me luck or sit back and laugh. Your choice.

    I think it is all in the mind set. I have swatched, and I usually match up, but if I get stressed out, I have to consciously relax, so I have been known to not swatch, but check early and tell myself to either tighten up or relax!!!

  2. I am honestly so rubbish at doing swatches, I usually just get too excited and start straight away! I’m sure it’ll end up looking lovely 🙂
