I'm in the saddle now
Finally started the saddles!
Wasn't sure I was going to be able to. My circular needle apparently jumped out of my knitting bag when I pulled something else out, and my friend's dog decided it was a good chew toy.
I was afraid I'd have to start swatching all over again to check the gauge, because that was one of the old nylon needles, and the only other needle I had in the same size was bamboo. I lucked out though, same gauge. And since my swatch didn't change gauge when I washed and dried it, I guess I'll be ok.
Whew! wipes forehead. It took me 2 1/2 months to swatch the first time, didn't want to have to do it again!
