As a super busy mother of three, I often feel like I have to justify the time I spend knitting. There are so many demands on my time, it sometimes feels a little selfish to prioritize what at first glance may look like a hobby. But, my friends, it is so much more than a hobby. Knitting keeps me sane, keeps me focused, and, without a doubt, makes me a better person.

We get it: Nobody really wants to make a gauge swatch. You want to jump right into the fun stuff! And while we’re all for spontaneity, sometimes it’s best to proceed with caution. If you don’t check your gauge you might end up with sweaters that are too large, bags that are too tiny, and gloves that pinch and squeeze. (Just don’t ask how we know.)
