Checking gauge

Yes, I actually swatched!  New yarn from Cherry Tree Hill was begging to become a pair of socks. I'm hoping this tiny bit of knit will be sufficient to check for correct needle size.  That's if I can unroll this baby.

As you can see, number 1 US needles swatched out at exactly 8 stitches to the inch.  Perfect.

Whew! After all that work, I need a snack.  Is anything better than fresh strawberries, right from the roadside stand?  I think not.

Now I'm ready to begin a pattern I've never tried before.  More on that, later.
