What are you most proud of? Making the sweater to fit me

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you're happy with your gauge swatch. I wasn't absolutely sure if I liked the look of my stitches, but I started anyway. I got almost finished with the project and realized I didn't like how it looked. So, I frogged it and went down a needle size. (That's when I decided to decrease the fronts at a slower rate, as well.) At this point I knew I was on track. Now I love my sweater. We all want to make something we can be proud of. This is such a great class! Thanks, Myra.
