Well I finally got around to swatching for St. Brigid. My gauge is off a bit. AS calls for 21 st and 27 rows over 10cm. I got 19 st and 28 rows. I am seldom under in my gauge. I seem to get looser and looser as I go. However, I was holding the yarn with a good bit of tension in hopes that I wouldn’t have to go down a needle size. I think if I hold the needle without the death grip, I should be in good shape. I am still not thrilled with the color but I am stuck with it as it was a special order. I guess I could try to unload it on eBay but I do like the photo in the book. It definately seems brighter than the book. But maybe I need a little more brightness in my life.
