I'm making this sweater for my cat.. http://www.christinelandry.com/?cat=7
Last night, in the chat, several people were very helpful I don't see anyone in there right now, so I'm going to ask here.
I did my gauge swatch last night with regular needles, and attempted to begin knitting on circular needles. I quit because I think that variegated yarn would have been too difficult for me to work with, and my circulars were way too long. I have never used circular needles before.
So today I bought new circulars and different yarn. Should I redo a gauge swatch? And if so, do I make the swatch using circular needles? I'm a little (no, a lot) unclear on how to knit a swatch on circular needles. And also, I'm not sure how to mark my rows. Should I just tally on paper as I finish each row?
