Smug, so very very smug
Public Service Announcement: Your swatch doesn’t count if you don’t block it.
Remember the photo of the swatch I showed you last time? Take a look at it after a little soak!
Totally different beast (with a whole stitch per inch difference in gauge). If I’d started the project without blocking the swatch, the finished project would have been way way way too big. I also feel like blocking the swatch helped me decide which color to go with (which was proving unreasonably challenging when I was just staring at the yarn).
