Why You Swatch

This is why you swatch. I took the time to knit "Nakiska", a cabled headband from Knitty, out of beautiful Blue Sky Alpacas alpaca and silk blend.

So what happened? First off, I didn't measure my head circumference. So I knit the "adult small" size. I can barely wear this as a yarmulkah! Maybe a pre-teen could wear it? Someone microcephallic? I don't know. I suppose I could sell it. I think I'll end up mourning it, and ripping it out and starting over, because the yarn is too beautiful (and expensive) to waste. I'll have to make it in the larger size (or SWATCH!!!!!!!!!)

So, tonight, as I start my Cat Bordhi socks- I am going to make one of her Sky Architecture socks from her latest sock book, in STR Rhodonite. :-)
