Hello, my name is Gretchen and I’m an imperfect knitter. I didn’t start out to be this way. As a matter of fact, I’m a perfectionist in many other areas of life, but not in knitting. I know some perfect knitters — their projects never have twisted stitches, holes, off-pattern rows, random YO, or any such errors! They would frog an entire project and start over, or tink row after row to get to perfection. But me? I actually have a high standard for imperfect — if I think I can repair it with a knot here or there, I just keep knitting — especially when I don’t see the error until 10 rows after I made the mistake! Here is a great example in my Dream Stripes Shawl! If you look closely you’ll see not only the “hole” but some “Twisted Stitches” –I just call them my signature!
