I'm a pretty new knitter and it seems that with some projects the things that I make are way smaller than they are suppose to be what should I do?

I could answer this, but here's some links that will say it far better than I could ever attempt:

Do I like to swatch? No! Do I? Honestly----sometimes. And I spend a lot of time ripping out.

It is just one of those knitting lessons that we all have to teach ourselves. That is.. the answer to the question of how much frogging does it take before we knuckle down and make good gauge swatches.

We also have to check and recheck as we knit because sometimes our gauge changes during the knitting.
