The K2Tog Crowd

Are you part of the k2tog crowd? When you happen to randomly find one too many stitches on your needle, does it pain you to know that your knit fabric may have one tiny flaw? Will that extra stitch just needle and bug you till you can stand it no more and you rip back 30 rows to sort it out. Will the knowledge that there is a mistake in your project ruin the finished glory of your piece? Or do you just knit two together?

Ahem, I bet you can guess which group I belong to. In fact, I vividly remember on my first knitting project I kept getting too many stiches in my ribbing, so I did what any kung fu knitter would do and unvented the k2tog to take care of that little problem.


On another note, I've been sick with a stomach virus this weekend. Thank goodness for saltines and bubble water.

I'm definitely in the k2tog crowd. If the finished garment fits and is comfy, I'm happy :)

Oh, I think I could do both. With my socks, K2Tog. With sweaters?...well, gotta rip em.

I'm definitely a k2tog girl - unless it is impossible to hide it. Perfection is tempting but not necessary to me - trying to be perfect makes my head hurt, literally =) and since I knit to RELAX I'm not that hard on myself b/c I want to enjoy it not stress out.
