My husband calls my gauge swatches “prototypes.” At first I was amused by this, but really, he’s right. A prototype is a proof-of-concept, something that validates what you’re attempting. And isn’t that what a swatch is?
So what *is* this mysterious blob? I am currently working on Every Last Yard, which is a lovely, seamless top-down sweater by Amy Swenson. I’m using Madelinetosh Pashmina yarn (in Celadon), which is simply heavenly stuff. (I’ve made two scarves out of it and am already thinking about what I can knit next with it!) I’m making pretty quick progress on it, so more pictures to come soon!
