Homework:
You must purchase your yarn and complete an accurate gauge swatch before arriving to class. The swatch should be blocked. To prepare a gauge swatch, please see this blog post or stop by the store for help. You should measure across stockinette stitch section to count number of stitches over 4 inches, both before washing and blocking and after.
