Awesome. I just started knitting a little over one year ago. When I finally (and I stress finally, because it was quite the daunting task) finished that @#$%^* baby scarf I was elated. My scarf also had edges where I had increased (accidentally), but I figure, "Hey! You want something perfect? Go to Wal Mart and get something made by a MACHINE."
Mistakes? No, no. That's character. Mistakes are a sign that something was made with love (because machines don't make mistakes...or love...HA HA).
ROCK ON! Now keep learning and go knit some more! Big kisses. :muah:
