[size=6]YOU PICKED THE WRONG PLACE TO PUT YOURSELF DOWN, YOUNG LADY!!![/size] I'm sorry, I didn't mean to yell. Everyone makes mistakes, everyone has to rip stuff out, everyone has projects that they're just not happy with in the end. Knitting is a process that evolves over time.
Enjoy it, relax with it. It's not being graded, judged or paraded around town. It's for you to do and to share with whom you wish.
It really does make me sad when people compare their knitting to that done by others with much more experience and time. It's not a competition--its a shared passion.
I'll step off my soap box now.
