Today's "Stitching Blogger's Question" was suggested by Kimberly and Lili and is:
How do you feel about staying totally true to a pattern? Do you feel that you have to rip out stitches to fix a mistake or do you feel it's acceptable to incorporate a mistake into the design?
I generally stitch according to the pattern, however, if it is a tiny mistake (a couple of stitches or so) I will adjust the pattern to make it like it isn't a mistake. Now if it is a big mistake, I will either rip it all out and start over or if it is way too big I will start the pattern all over from the beginning.
