L Shaped Swatches…

… for when you can’t spend a minute longer than necessary on swatching!

Just remember to make them tall enough to read the row gauge vertically and wide enough to read the stitch gauge horizontally.

There’s been a lot of jet-lag fueled knitting, blocking, swatching and planning. More soon.

    That’s awesome. I always dread swatching and make a tiny square and try to extrapolate the size, but this is way better!!

  4. What a brilliant idea!

  5. What a wonderful idea!

  6. Cheater ;)

  7. I hate checking my gauge, which means *gasp* I usually don’t do it. This is a great trick to save some time, thanks for sharing!
