To Swatch or Not To Swatch?

I hate making swatches. They just keep me from diving into a new project.

I am beginning the One Way Tee by Debbie O’Neill ( Interweave Knits Spring 2015) today. Yay! I purchased  a worsted weight 100% wool yarn (on sale at Stitches West) and the pattern calls for DK weight. I could just make the x-small size to compensate for thicker yarn and bigger needles. However, since I will be spending a lot of time creating my garment, I have convinced myself to do it right. No cutting corners! Hopefully, my gauge matches as I really hate to do the math.

What are you working on this weekend?
