I was happily knitting away on my hat when I stopped to admire my handiwork. I noticed a small mistake. The kind that probably only myself would notice. I kept on knitting but when I came back around I saw it again and it aggravated me even more.
I’ve dropped down and fixed minor mistakes before, so I didn’t think anything of it. I just dropped down and “fixed” it. You’ll notice I put fix in quotation marks. That’s because I went from minor mistake to glaringly obvious screw up.
Lesson learned for today? Don’t drop down to fix something unless you’re willing to rip out and reknit everything up until that point. Bonus lesson: If it’s a minor mistake, just live with it. Nobody but you will ever notice it and it helps make your item one of a kind.
Now, if anyone needs me, I’ll be over here tinking. Forever.
