Things I have learned from being outsmarted by malabrigo:

1. Wash and block a swatch knitted in the pattern stitch. Discovered after I washed and blocked a swatch in stockinette. This told me a whole whopping lot of nothing. I would have saved myself two stupid sweaters worth of trouble had I actually done this. Will do it for my next malabrigo project.

2. Yes, Virginia, different stitches do stretch differently.

3. Fit for sweaters is considerably different than fit for clothing.

4. Making a sweater is considerably different than, say, making a shirt.
