I'm swatchin my Madtosh DK tonight in Grasshopper and Flashdance.
I am antsy to start knitting on my Double Refraction Shawl out of it. Hopefully, tomorrow morning when I wake up, the swatch will be dry. At the moment, is sitting in the yarn room under the ceiling fan full blast!

I know there are varying opinions on whether to seam a garment or not. My preference is to not. I have blogged before about how much I like top down or bottom up, to the point that even if it is in pieces, I will rework the pattern to make seaming at a minimum.
Unfortunately, the latest sweater for Mona Lisa had to be seamed due to the flares in the construction. It took me a good five nights to sew all of the pieces together, including a hood that I have discarded.
