This evening I cast on Jennifer Hoel’s design, Garter Stripe Baby Socks.
I’m using my Koigu KPPPM yarn and I did actually do a semi-swatch last night on straight needles and found that my gauge on size 3 needles with this yarn double stranded was about 9 stitches per inch. I have about 2 inches knit so far and I’m getting 6 stitches per inch in the round on dpns. So, I’m close to what the pattern actually calls for which is 8 stitches per inch. I certainly won’t be frogging this out for 2 measly extra stitches.
I’m hoping to finish a pair of these by the weekend.
