Next time you can fake an in the round swatch without cutting... CO about 10-12 sts more than you need, knit the first row then slide the sts back to the beginning of the needle, leave the yarn loose across the back and knit another row.

I meant to mention that the row gauge can be fudged easier because most patterns will have you knit to a certain legth - x inches, not y rows. So you just knit to the measurement given regardless of the number of rows.
