  1. Once I saw the paint drip scarf…I understood AHA!

    Those birds! Amazing!!

    And, finished with flaws is not likely to be worn.

    But unfinished is even less likely to be worn?

    Finished with flaws is always going to irritate, I think.

    I’ve worn every sweater I’ve knitted to rags, flaws and all. Being perfect – attempting to be perfect – sounds so tiring. “Perfect enough” is my motto.

    I suppose it depends on the severity of the flaws. “The perfect is the enemy of the good” and all. Small flaws that most people won’t see, they stay and I go on. Something that changes the appearance enough for the untutored public to notice? That usually gets ripped out. It’s a balance.

    Finished might be better than perfect, but the finished quality still needs to be good enough. I try not to be a perfectionist, and I certainly have plenty of “design features” in my handknits, but there is such a thing as finished and worthless.
