"Ever get almost to the end of your first row and realize you miscounted your starting chain and now have too few stitches? Everyone counts their stitches as they make their starting chain. Most of us probably re-count the stitches at least once before we start row one. But it seems, to me, when I get to the end of that first row, all too often I miscounted by a stitch or two and had to find a way to fix it which usually meant doing it over."
