On the Knit/Crochet Front Tonight I attended my first Knitting Guild Meeting. It was great. The Guild that I am a member is the Knit at Night Guild here in Houston. They are a great group of women and we learned how to fix our knitting mistakes. I think the wisest thing our teacher said was to learn what you are willing to live with. If the mistake is a the top of a sock that no one is going to see then don't drive yourself crazy. My two cents is that this is a hobby and most of us do it to relieve stress, why add more stress. On the other hand, I will be the first one ripping back to make it match the pattern whether anyone can tell or not. If you are not a member of your local Knitting or Crochet Guild, join. This is art that we are talking about and it is art that we do not want to lose.

Also, my Ravelympic socks are coming along great. I may actually get them finished by the extinguishing of the flame.
