Baby Steps - Swatching


Recovery is upon us. I am swatching with the Jo Sharp Aran Tweed in Jewel again to knit the Flanders Bay Pullover. So far the swatch is bigger than I need. I'm wondering should I just knit the smaller size? Should I try it with size 7 needles instead of the recommended 8? That sounds a bit risky to me, but maybe going smaller is what we need to do anyway. The swatch isn't finished and it needs to be washed and dried to really know. Stay tuned. I'm just happy to be breaking out of the pain of the Diminishing Rib Cardi. Actually, maybe I'm ready to start knitting that again, but with a different yarn. I am so determined to knit a raglan sweater...

You'll love knitting a raglan sweater -- it sometimes feels like magic! I suggest you go down a needle size rather than knit a smaller size sweater. Love the color of your yarn!

What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
