The plan was work ten rows (and thereby consume the Maltesers) and that would be the inch worked and then all I needed to do was complete my decrease row (which didn't involve candy).
I honestly don't know why I bother to plan; things rarely work out the way I plan them.
After eight rows I thought, that looks like it might be the right length already; so I measured and yup, eight rows and I'm there! Now, being the true knitter that I am, I had a choice to make; should I:
a) recheck my gauge, because obviously there was a problem...two rows worth!?
b) put the extra Maltesers back in the package? or
c) work the decrease row---eat a Malteser and finish---but what about the last sweet?
Yea, I ate it and you know why?
Because I'm worth it!!
