Tips and Tricks-
Ease in a sweater- socks have negative ease
The Little White Cardi by Kate Oates is a fitted sweater- it has 2 inches of positive ease.
When a sweater is a fitted design, go up a size for more room in the garment.

When a mistake is left in a garment on purpose, it's called a "humility stitch."

How long it will take to knit a project: Measure 5 yard of yarn and knit that, timing how long it takes. 
Example: knit 5 yards in 10 minutes- if your project has 500 yards of yarn, 100*10 mins = 16.67 hours.

Gauge: Make sure your swatch is knitted in the round, or flat, depending on the technique needed for your project.
