I am swatching for this summer sweater. This is some linen from stash and the pattern is one I have wanted to knit for a long time. The new Knitscene has a wonderful article on swatching and I am going to follow every step. I usually do a swatch and wash and block it before starting the project. This time I am going to do before and after blocking measurements and pay close attention to row gauge. Tomorrow more pics of swatching, measuring and blocking. Exciting stuff huh?
