The amazing shrinking swatch

I just measured my swatch for Bella Pacquita again, and it's shrunk. Maybe it wasn't completely dry yet when I measured it before? Whatever. It's now at the stated gauge for the sweater: 18 sts/4 inches.

That's really annoying because I already cast-on for the bodice of the sweater. I did, however, make extra chains in my COWYAK provisional cast-on, so I can pick up extra stitches.

What will this swatch do next?
