When I got back to knitting my Mom's Sweater, I knew I had to do one thing before I got too invested in knitting the body--put it on waste yarn and try it on.
Now this is sort of a personal war I go through.
My reason: "Put it on the waste yarn."
My creative: "It takes too much time. I just want to knit. Everything will be fine."
But after a few more rows, then common sense finally kicks in because I know one thing: no matter if I knit a gauge swatch, and even if it is spot on with the pattern requirements, sometimes a project will end up too big and then I've got to frog it and start over.
So the waste yarn wins out.
So after I put all the stitches on waste yarn, I try it on.
And when I discover it fits perfectly, my reason gets the one up.
"See I told you to check it out. Now knit on!"
