Hey welcome back! You've been missed!

A sock-knitter friend of mine keeps a perpetual sock gauge swatch on the dpns so now she has a long tube of swatches connected together. Most of her yarns are the same weight, so the same needles, give or take a size, work for her. YMMV

I plan to start my own sock tube swatch once I get the right size dpns. It's kind of neat to see all the past socks she's done in one tube. I guess she can afford to have the extra set of needles. Supposedly you want to swatch in the round if your project is to be done in the round.

WIP: GAAA for m&d, purse for grandma (needs assembly), Grannie Smith Cardi (still), 3 quilts, maybe five

In the Wings: felted clogs, socks

Recent FO: dishcloth for swap, booties for cousins babe

KALs: Grannie Smith, Monthly Dishcloths, Mason-Dixon
