Truly Myrtle Podcast - Episode 35: Swatches & Playing Dressups

It's been raining non-stop here this past week. My kids have been on holiday and while I've been tackling some cleaning they've been reading and making lots of things - we've got a new knitter in the house!

This week I'm chatting about swatching - do you swatch? It is definitely worth it if you want a predictable outcome but it took quite a while for me to get over my "fears" around swatching being a waste of yarn and the numbers not being accurate.

Joeli has a create tutorial about swatching in the round so you can reuse your swatch

I also use Jane Richmond's technique for swatching in the round

Did you know that different needles alter your gauge? Yep, it's true. I've written about it in this blog post.

I really enjoyed this programme about British Vogue Magazine this week. I'm not sure if you can watch it in your country but it's well worth a watch.

Are you joining the local yarn swap? This weekend is the last chance to get involved. Head over to Ravelry and sign up :)

As usual, my fabulous theme tune is "Casting On" by Mr Roberelli.
