I swatch.  Some people don't.  I don't swatch because I am a responsible knitter, I swatch because I have absolutely no idea what needle size to use.  No idea.  It seems like some people don't swatch at all -- how do they do it?  If I were to just guess I would absolutely create something unrecognizably disproportioned.  

Not that swatches don't lie, but they do give some vague hint of the direction I should be heading in....


  1. I don't swatch. I find it totally unnecessary.

  2. So glad your new blog is up and running...and it has KNITTING :) I sometimes swatch. I really depends on the project. If it's a sweater or something that will be worn, then I usually swatch. Although, I usually don't swatch socks. I guess it depends on my mood ;)
