More on swatching…

We’re still recovering from illness around here, so no sadly, new knitting to report here. But I just read a great post by Kate Atherley (Wise Hilda Knits) on the difference that a even a quarter of a stitch can can make in your gauge.

So now I’m wondering if those tiny fraction-of-a-stitch-off measuring errors (even over a 4-inch swatch that you’ve oh-so-carefully measured) might contribute to the perceived inaccuracies of swatches. What do you think?
