Seaming or Swatching?

Today we're going to play a little game.  A little game called, "How well do you know nona?"  Don't worry, it's fun and you get to click stuff -- you like to click stuff don't you?

I'm lounging in limbo here my friends.  I've almost finished my Japanese Vest -- seaming is the last step -- and am planning my next project -- Green Gable.  In this decidedly precarious position there are two equally enticing options.  Did I finish the old project or start the new?  Go on guess...

Did I seam or did I swatch?

Heh-heh! I thought you'd probably cast on for the Green Gable, but I clicked on the vest anyway. Hopefully it's seamed together soon.

Ohh, how exciting. Can't wait to see what the swatch will become

*giggle* I know enough about knitters to know it's hard to resist casting on for a new project!

That was fun! How did I know you were swatching? Because that's what most knitters would do.

I love fun clicky games! Good times and one point for me :)

Aha! Yup - you were swatching! Great post idea!

I guessed wrong!!!

I have the pattern for green gable, and I dig it. I'm not sure if I want to actually go green and use my calmer in teal (peacock or something or other) or use a different yarn. I have 11,456 projects in my little queue so I'll probably finish it in, um, December.

The ivory will look fab!

Hehe...I got it right!
Can't wait to see how the vest turns out though ;D

I got it right! Who seams when they can swatch?

I know what you're doing because I just saw you. The calmer is perfect on 5s and yes--I did have a pair (actually 2 pairs) and now I'm off and running on the t-shirt, top down. I love seeing you on Friday's. Keep smiling and-- happy birthday week.
