whew! You dodged that one. yay!

They are devious little buggers, those swatches. I made a sweater last year for my brother, and not only did I swatch repeatedly, but I actually had him in house while I was knitting. Not to be foiled in so simple a manner, the finished sweater upped the ante by s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g like crazy after it was all done and blocked, leading to a phone call from my brother asking if he could "just throw it in the dryer to shrink it up a little." We're talking a 50" chest fancy aran knit in wool and alpaca. After I recovered the power of speech, I had to clarify for him some of the finer points of handknit sweater care.


Good that it fit well! Also, I am going to bookmark your bind off tutorials. So handy!
