Wicked Swatching

I'm going to use Patons Classic Wool in Paprika. My gauge was off on size 7's, so I'm currently swatching with 8's. I am a tight knitter, so I usually have to go up a needle size to get gauge. Hopefully I'll be casting on by the end of next week.

I'm using Patons Merino Wool too but in the blue denim shade. I did my swatch on 7's but was a bit off so also had to move up to an 8. I cast on tonight and did about an inch & 1/2" before succumbing to exhaustion. I really love the way it's turning out.

I'm using Paton's Denim, too! I'm totally diggin the way the stockinette part looks. I do wish you could see the twisted cables a bit easier, though.

I'm a tight knitter as well an ended up having to go all the way up to size 9 needles for proper gauge.

Good luck!
