Perfectionism!
What is "perfect" when it comes to our knitting and crafting projects varies from maker to maker. For example, some sock knitters must knit perfectly matching socks! Others don't mind if the striping varies or if the toes are knit in different colors. Does your need for perfection hold you back from trying new things? Does it ever keep you from finishing projects? Gayle shares the story of her Ashes shawl.
