How we change

I used to love finishing projects.  Not the sewing up and weaving in ends but having the finished project in my hands.  For quite some time I'd be willing to overlook mistakes or fudge things so I wouldn't have to go back but could keep going.  I was thinking about this in the shawl I'm making.  I realized I missed a yard over a good while back, and I thought to myself "I can just create another stitch in this row, it's not obvious."  I could have, it wouldn't have been obvious to anyone.  You'd have to look for the mistake to find it.

It was driving me crazy.

I ripped backed to fix it, and I told myself the thing I always tell myself while fixing mistakes like this.

I like knitting.  This is just more knitting.
