I’m talking about the inevitable mistakes that find their way into our yarn-y creations of course. We all make ’em. Some we live with. Others we rip out before anyone can ever see them!
For the record, I’ve done that last one. I finished the left-side front of a cardigan and was feeling pretty pleased with myself and started the other front piece. I was half-way through it before I realized it was ALSO a left-sider. Then I sat and stared at it really, really hard and tried to fix it with the power of my brain. When that didn’t work, I started ripping.

The mistakes only we know about make our socks truly unique. I consider these slip-ups as a sort of personal signature. Then again, I am reluctant to give away anything I know has a mistake in, so I have quite a lot of socks….
Well, that sounds like a very fine system you have. I support selfish knitting. And selfish crocheting. Any excuse to hang on to the warm lovely things is a good one.
I once made two left-handed mitts and staring at them really hard didn’t do much good in that case either. You think I would learn but… naw.
Make 2 rights and give one pair away.
Half the stuff I do, I do wrong. Love me the way I am.
