Perfect or good enough?
I have been knitting on this sweater since last September when we went for a last minute summer trip to southern Spain. Andreas was six weeks old, and I was already preparing for winter. Luckily, I didn’t choose the smallest pattern size otherwise it would have been too small for him by now.
This weekend I finally got my knitting act together and finished the sweater. On Saturday, I even bought yellow buttons for it to make a contrast to the grey and blue. Now however, I am beginning to doubt that they are the right yellow buttons. Perhaps I should visit one more store to see if I can find the perfect match…
How about you? Do you have knitting projects that the recipient grew out of before even using it? Was it because you forgot about it or because you were looking for the perfect “something” accessory?
It is no fun to finish a project and think “I should have put on other buttons”, right?
