Swaving on US 0

Recent swaving on US 0 (2  mm) pricks using 1,200 ypp (4-ply) yarn.  It is a firm, weatherproof fabric, good for a trip around the Horn, on a square rigged ship.

Gauge is 8.5 spi.

In the lower photo, the white rod is a US 3 (3.25 mm)  knitting needle.

Anybody that can knit that gauge on US 3 needles is truly ready for a trip around the Horn.
