swatching

I like the look of the resulting fabric (it's the Habu super fine merino and tsumagi silk and some laceweight cashmere from Hunt Valley Cashmere). The drape isn't quite what I want. My gauge is tight, but I don't think I want to go up a needle size because I'm not convinced I'll like the resulting fabric. I'll probably just modify the pattern to support this gauge (and, at the same time, make the sweater somewhat smaller).

Smokey, is that gauge standing up all by itself?
