Holy freaking crap!!! I did it! (insert happy dance here LOL!) I got gauge on US 8's!! I just washed and it is drying, but I don't expect it to shrink/grow too much as the prior swatches didn't...I am spot on!!hehe...20 stitches/28 rows. You just don't know how I feel right now!....HA!
Of course you do! ;)
Working on my sock homework now...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
