Test Knit Continues

Almost finished with my test knit, when I slipped on my "Adult Large" and realized it was more of an "Adult Medium".  Hmmmm?  Checked my gauge and, oops.  

I DID do a swatch and a I WAS spot on with my gauge of 9 sts/10 rounds per 2 inches, but now?  10 stitches/14 rounds per two inches.

How did that happen?

The only thing I can figure is that I swatched with acrylic needles and was going to knit them one at a time.  I hate knitting identical items one at a time, so I frogged and switched to two-at-a-time and when I did that I switched to my wood size 7 needles.

Lesson learned -- knit swatches WITH the needles you plan to use!
