I cast on and knit a bit on my socks with the Schaefer Anne. I decided to knit the ever popular Jaywalker. I loved the way it looked, and the subtle striping from the yarn. But, I had decided to do a picot edge. And I did it wrong. So I frogged. Since I frogged, I decided to go up a needle size, cause the US0 size needles that I was using were hard to work with. But now I'm worried that the larger needles aren't right. So this comes to the question in my title - do you swatch for socks? I did swatch with the size US1 needles and wasn't sure if the gauge was right. And I also didn't swatch in the round, which I think makes a difference. But now I'm not sure if I should make a swatch, or just keeping going with the sock and see, and then frog again if I don't get gauge. You see, the thing is, the sock isn't that much bigger than the swatch, so does it make sense to swatch or just keep going with the sock and then frog if the gauge isn't right.
In other news, I started a cute baby sweater from the Spring edition of Family Circle Easy Knitting. I'm bummed because they have a new publisher and their website hasn't been updated. I'm worried that there is an error in the pattern, but I'm just going to push ahead and see how it comes out. I'll try to post some photos tomorrow.
And I'm busy thinking about projects for Project Spectrum for this month. I have some yellow yarn in there and some orange Baby Ull that I picked up last year when I found out that I was pregnant. We'll see what calls to me.
