I've had a rotten week. One that's been hanging over me for a while. It's been full of appointments (including two very lengthy ones in the dentist's chair). I always do that - engineer all my grotty things to fall within one week so that when the dreaded time comes, I hold my breath, put my head down and plough through it, knowing that it will soon be over.
And finally it is!
Anyway, feeling just a touch lightheaded with relief, I thought it would be fun to put a scenario to you.
You're crocheting (or knitting) yourself a scarf. You've got about fifty perfectly executed rows under your belt when you suddenly notice that you've dropped a stitch, (crocheted through one loop instead of two) near the very beginning.
(I know you can't see it very well from this picture but, trust me, it's there.)
Would you not give it a second thought?
Would it bug you so much that you'd just have to unravel?
Would you bury it in the depths of your 'WIP' basket, promising yourself that you will deal with it 'some other time'?
I would just love to know what your reaction would be and how you'd deal with it, if at all.
Edited to add : Bless you all, you're just too lovely for words! I did a quick straw poll in my own household - two of us wouldn't bother at all with the mistake but the other two struggled! I'm a perfectionist so, yes, it did bug me enormously but I didn't unravel it. Nearly but not quite. I had a strict word with myself and have decided to embrace the imperfection as a fitting reflection on a pants week. If it had been any more noticeable then it would have been for the chop!!!
