gauge swatches are evil

So, I feel like a total dummie.
I bought the TLC cotton plus ( what can I say, I would jump off a bridge if you all did too =) ) and I have been trying and trying to get my swatch correct, but it keeps coming out wrong.
I went from size 8 to size 4 needles (with every other size between) before I realized that I needed to go LARGER, not SMALLER!
aaagggh! I was so confused on why my measurements seemed to be getting bigger. lol.
Hope to be posting pics soon of my yarn and buckle. I am a complete noob at all this blog stuff, and need to buy a cable for my camera. Then figure out how to post them!
I hope its easier then figuring out gauge! =)
I am so excited to be joining in on this knit along. Cant wait to see everyones progress!

Thanks for posting! I haven't gotten my TLC yet (yes, I'm right behind you on that bridge) and I probably would have done the same thing when (if, eh eh) I try to swatch!
ah
