|Summer, Knitscene Magazine|
I just shocked you there, didn't I?
Well, go buy the issue and read that article. You'll learn the difference between the two gauges, why each is important, how to properly measure each, and how to calculate the differences. Highlight it. Re-read it. Learn it. Live it! I am confident that it will turn that knitting path ahead of you into a whole new direction.
Oh, and definitely let yourself ooh and aah over the collection of designs from Sarah Wilson (aka The Sexy Knitter). Seriously, her designs will wow you (and since you now know about proper gauge, it won't be wishful thinking to start knitting some!).
