More Gauge Lies

Click on the images to see them larger. This is why it's important to wash and dry your gauge swatch before determining gauge. The swatch was worked in pattern on US 4 needles; it was machine-washed (as per instructions) and laid flat to dry. Row gauge shrunk (from 9 rows per inch to about 8.5 rows per inch) and stitch gauge expanded from about 6.5 sts per inch to 6 sts per inch).

I love your quotes of the day. I was just wondering if I had gone done the wrong roads, been untrue to my twenty year old self and there was Robert L Stevenson. Thank you!
