Gauge for Socks

Gauge for Socks, originally uploaded by vickijensen.

I am so excited!!! I knit this swatch to check my gauge for my first pair of hand-dyed, hand spun socks. I ended up deciding to use 6 stitches per inch, knit on size 5 needles. I love the way the yarn is going to self-stripe!

I made lots of progress on my Winter Sweater this week too. I sewed the shoulder seams and picked up and knitted the front band. I am still hoping to get it finished to wear on Thanskgiving, but if not, I will wear it on Christmas.
