For instance, the project that I am just about to get back to...Several rows ago I made some decreases that left comparatively large holes in the fabric in a place that would definitely show. I DETEST ripping back, so I just kept going, rationalizing that it wouldn't be all that noticeable....and then, a few nights ago, I finally gave in to that nagging voice inside of me, telling me to go back and fix it. I ripped out several rows of work, went back, changed the way the decrease was worked to fill in the holes, and then I had to make changes to the written pattern as well, for several rows. I'm still not back to where I was, but the design will be better for my ripping and re-doing. Next time hopefully that nagging voice will convince me more quickly to make the change so that it isn't so involved and time-consuming.
Also, International Crochet Day is coming up on Sept. 12. My friend Jimbo (who makes exquisite wooden crochet hooks) is hosting a contest via his blog for the occasion. You should definitely go check it out! I will be doing a giveaway on my blog as well for International Crochet Day, stay tuned...
Until then, happy crocheting!
