Who, me, swatch?!

Just had to blog about this here…At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we don’t get our yarns labelled for content/gauge here in India…So whenever I work with a pattern, I’m working on totally different materials and with a totally different hook as well. I’ve been encouraged by the posts of Sara

Gauge? Hook size? Feh! Who wants to live life so cautiously?

and Dee on this….

yes, I am crocheting without working up a gauge swatch first. Oh, the shame! I can see you’re swooning, feeling a bit faint from my confession, are ya? Go ahead, put a cool cloth on your forehead.

I am not alone! YAY!

So Cindy, you can add me to your list of gauge-defaulters.

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.

  1. LOL! Dawn (Wild Yarn) also added her name to the list.

    I really don’t know how to get rid of crickets. We have the same problem where I am.
