I was reading this blog talking about Sock Summit II and thought I would share. Almost makes me ready to try socks again... Wink

I love the board with the swatches. But I still say swatches lie.

I enjoyed reading blog - but still not enticed into socks!
The swatch board is how I imagined it would be-all different sizes from all different people - I am a swatcher!

I've just swatched and got the exact size required. Whether it'll be the same once I knit the garment is a different matter entirely but it might not be too far off.

I'm there with you Hils, it doesn't entice me to make socks. Whether I swatch or not depends on what I'm making. If a shawl, afghan or scarf, I usually don't worry about gauge.
