When I got the yarn from Hubby dearest, I can’t wait to get started with knitting socks. But a few pages on my book on socks, the author strongly recommends that I swatch my yarn before I start anything. All this while, I don’t swatch. My ‘sifu’ when I learn to knit never thought me to swatch. I learn how to adapt a pattern with the her so no matter what yarn, it’s still OK.
But this time around, I figure, it’s not that easy to adapt a pattern for socks to have it fit nicely. I dug out my 2.5mm Korean bamboo circular which I bought from Mayfair sometime ago and did a swatch following the instructions from the book, washed it and blocked it.
This is a note as one day I’d might dig up this swatch again and don’t know what is the gauge. So, this swatch is 30st in 4 inches with 2.5mm needles.
