Swatching for greatness!

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?

You're so much better than me. I might swatch for gauge, but I never actually wash & block the swatch! LOL
