All Wound Up


 My plying experiment is dry and ready for swatching.


After my sweater disaster, I take my swatching seriously.



 Before washing, my sample is 4 by 3 inches.


 After washing it grew in length but not width.



After drying it snapped back into shape. That's a good thing, right?



 As for the naughty Merino, it got swatched and washed again.


This is the gauge I ended up with so I'm hoping that what I spin during the Tour will  match. Who wants to bet it doesn't?
