That does bring up a good point. I bet if you asked most knitters, they would say they gravitate to a certain needle size & weight of yarn. Me, I knit almost everything on US6-8. Even socks, I just double the yarn & make boot socks.

After a while of knitting on the same needles, same size & similar yarn, you pretty much know how many stitches per inch you will get. Whether you swatch or not.
