But Don’t worry, everything is fixable!
Last year my Faithful Sherpa and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We decided we wanted to take a road trip in his 1954 Chevy truck. After doing some research, I found a beautiful bed and breakfast in Unionville, NV "Old Pioneer Garden." Here's the link: http://www.oldpioneergarden.com/ Check it out, it's an amazing place!
I wanted to knit an anniversary scarf for myself, so after finding some beautiful Mad Tosh yarn in my stash, and a pattern I liked, I set out knitting.
When we arrived, we celebrated by sharing beers on the front porch.
For dinner we bbq'd a rib eye and shared a bottle of wine.
Then we turned on the TV, plugged in an old VHS (that's all they had and that was fine by us) and watched a movie all while knitting my new lace scarf.
The next morning, I picked up my knitting and started in, when I noticed something was a bit off. It was a triangular pattern, starting at the point with three stitches, and increasing from there.
But because I had a few beers and then a few glasses of wine, my increases kind of got out of hand. Well at least on one side. It turns out I knit 55 increases on one side, and only 35 on the other.
But never worry, anything can be fixed!
I also discovered I had dropped several stitches! So I ripped out almost eveything, and started over.
I used to hate when I had to rip out my knitting. It was so disappointing to me to think that I had spent so much time knitting a particular garment to then find a mistake at the beginning.
But you learn so much from your mistakes! So, remember, is it’s ok to make a mistake. Mistakes are teachable moments. Both in your knitting and in life.
