ok, here's my gauge swatch for the Telluride Aran KAL that is just starting this month @ Needle Rock. Due to my avid listening to knitting podcasts, I not only knit the 4" to see if 27 rows was correct (it is!), but then did nearly another 4" of the honeycomb cable pattern to check stitch count there. & then, & then, & then, I BLOCKED it! Can you believe it!
(sorry the color is so off - this really is a lovely middle gray colorway).
& for those who are not doing the KAL - this is Findley DK from Knitting Fever, a 50/50 merino/silk blend that is positively dreamy to work, to touch, to wear. Who else is ready to cast on?
