Don't Forget Your Gauge Swatch!
Thursday, November 02, 2006



If you've ever made this face while knitting, you need this journal. This illustration is based on my extensive experience of knitting ill-fitting sweaters. It's a gentle reminder to knit a gauge swatch, something we knitters all need to do! I get happy whenever I look at that girl's face. Oh! The annoyance!! I shoulda known better! Argh!!

Even though I am very aware of how much I should be making a gauge swatch... I find it nearly impossible to make myself do it!

I know! No wonder the directions alwasy state in bold letters "Do a gauge swatch!!!"

Hi, Angela
Kyle first told me about your blog. Love your sense of humor and fell absolutely in love with the "gauge swatch" journal, so of course I had to get one. Picked up the Bus Stop one, too! Great work!
Happy Knitting!

Hey Josie, I was wondering who bought something from my store! I hope you like them. The journals always come out really well. I have a ton of them. They're little and fit in my bag and I like having cute stuff on the cover.

Happy knitting (and scribbling!) to you too!
