I finished a quick project today. OK, quick as in I started it last night and finished sometime tonight. This is of course with frequent interruptions including sleeping, coughing, eating, visiting neighbors, etc.

So anyway, I finish it only to find I'm not exactly sure how I feel about the finished product! I followed the instructions and it looks just like the picture but if I could, I would have done it slightly differently. Usually I have no problem ripping something out and fixing the problem area. Unfortunately, this problem area is in the ribbing of a hat! This means I'd have to rip it all out and start over! ARGH!! The hat fits fine but feels a little loose in the ribbing.

What do I do? Rip it out? Start over?? I feel like I should. But then I'd have to knit it again and even though it didn't really take long, I did put a lot of effort into it. Or, should I just leave it. It looks great and probably will be ok. ARGHGHSHAGHAGHDAHGH!! WHAT TO DO WHAT TO DO!

Well. I think you know how I feel about frogging. I'm against it. But I also know how you're quite the perfectionist, especially when it comes to knitting. I say keep it as is. It's fine!
