I was just cruising along on the Moderne baby blanket, absolutely determined to hit the finish line this weekend. Sometimes, in a rush to complete a project, you consciously or unconsciously overlook things that are less than quality. “Oh, I can block that into shape. It won’t be a problem.” You know what they say about denial.

It’s just that, after nearly 3 inches of this crap, I couldn’t let it go any longer. No amount of squishing, stretching or looking at it sideways would change the facts. The stitches had to be undone. Thankfully, I had a willing helper.

Seeing his antics as I ripped out my early morning work made the undo much less painful. I’d rather lose a couple of hours work than hand over a gift, knowing that it was less than my best.

By the way, I was only 4 inches from finishing the blanket.
