This is my latest WIP.

After I took the picture, I realized that I made a boo-boo. Can you tell where it is? If you need
help, I will point it out for you.

Bear with me, my Photoshop skills are lacking, but you see where the mistake was made. Funny thing is when I realized I made the mistake, I grumbled to myself and so hubby asked what happened. When I told him, he couldn't tell where the mistake was made. He then told me not to worry about and leave it because my mom probably wouldn't notice where it was either.

The thing is he may be right, but there is the possibility that he is wrong. Or if he is right she may be wearing it and someone else might notice. Nonetheless, it never crossed my mind to not fix the mistake. It is just one of those things that happen. When you knit, you sometimes make mistakes. I was just happy that this is not a lace project that I had to frog back umpteen rows or worse start over because I couldn't figure out where or how to fix it.

Anyhow, with the whole hubby telling me not to fix it and me determined to fix it, I was wondering what you do when you make a mistake on a project.

i'm with you michelle...if i make a mistake i have to fix it. it will always be glaring at me even though no one other than me will ever notive. (this rule applies to non-mohair lace projects only of course...)

I always, always ladder back and then start crying when I realize that the pattern is too tricky for me to fix that way. Then I run lifeline through the work and rip. ;-)

Well... not even after you pointed it out on the second pic could I really recognize the mistake - so it's definitely a very tiny one! But I do admit, no matter what people might say, as long as we knitters know a mistake is there, most of us can hardly sleep at night - me included, especially when it's a project that I did for someone else. With stuff that I'm doing for myself I got a bit of a cooler stance towards it over the years, if it's not something that yells "mistake" I don't bother anymore to fix it, and by the time even forget that it was there. If it's easy to be seen or if it's for someone else, then I ladder back or rip back or tink back and fix it, I wouldn't get any rest anymore if I wouldn't do so.;(
