Gauge Swatching

Good morning!  I thought I'd show you the new gauge swatch that I knit yesterday in a hemp/cotton blend.   This is what my daughter picked out for a new hat.

I'm knitting it with the yarn doubled and it took three needle tries to find a fabric that I was happy with.  The knitting on the needle is knit with a 4mm.  That's the one I'm going to go with.  I think the 4.5mm and 5mm were both a bit on the loose side.

It's Friday (yay!) and I'm able to meet up with the girls for a bit of knitting time where I'll cast on and get this hat started.  Have a great Friday!
