Good News, Bad News

Bad news first. Since I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to crafts I pulled out the finished wash cloth to redo it. I was looking more at the pattern and looking more at the one I finished and realized that it was oddly tapered. And I don't like it when my crocheting is crooked. I find it's actually more difficult to keep a straight edge on crochet works. I haven't edged anything yet though, so maybe that would make a difference.
This is an example of edging :) Cleans up nicely I'd say!
So I pulled out the finished work and started over following the pattern exactly (I had added 10 more stitches and actually didn't need to). This afternoon during Kaitlyn's nap I finished 2! :D I'm headed into my 3rd and have decided I like this hook size and will pull out the other wash cloth (different yarn) as well. Even though it's annoying that I do this (ALL THE TIME) I've found that this means I practice more, that things turn out much better, and that I'm happier. It's really a good thing in the long run.
So I will finish and weave in the ends on the blue wash clothes and post that up here. After that I will pull out and start over on the tan/green wash clothes. I'm excited!
Is Christmas here yet?
