As I've been plugging away on this week's WIP Wednesday project, the second of my Allgäu Socks, I've been able to see mistakes in the first that I never knew were there.
Spot it? This is the underside of the sock and the mistake is more visible here than on the pattern section.
There's two of these... do I care? Well, unusually, no - not really.
I can't quite tell why, I normally have a zero-tolerance policy for mistakes in my handknits but these just aren't really bothering me. Perhaps it's just the sheer quantity of work that would be involved in ripping back a sock because you made a mistake on the third pattern repeat, perhaps it actually just doesn't matter.
I can't see a mistake in the second sock yet ;)
