Gratitude Sunday: Thanks


Today, I’m going to switch things up a tiny bit.  I have material for my usual style of “Gratitude Sunday” posts but today I just want to focus on one thing.  That is saying “thank you”.  To all of you who reached out to me here after this post about my job situation.  To all of you who supported me on Ravelry, sent me email and have been all-around caring.   Thank You!

The news doesn’t get better but I’ll know more in the next two weeks.  But for now, I want to focus on how grateful I feel for all your support.  I feel so blessed having connected with you all; words seem ineffective in really conveying that.   But I trust that you feel my sincerity.

Here’s to a great Sunday and a wonderful week ahead for all of us.

Calling All Knitters: The Question of Gauge

Let me get right my dilema …

I used to be like this:


but I’m not like that anymore.  However, although swatching and gauge checking are now my best friends, I’m not sure if I should use them for every project.   What I want to know is do you all swatch for small items?  Like hats, socks, mittens?

You can answer me in the comments or through the poll below.  Thanks bunches.
