My Lorelai Shawl (named "Rory" on Ravelry because that's more 'me') is slowly taking shape. I've decided to go for it, and fix my mistakes along the way. The arrowhead pattern goes two stitches askew in the navy section, I have a mistake on the second half of the yellow band. I am sure it will be lovely when it's done and only I will see the mistakes (unless the designer happens to stop by while I'm wearing it - she lives on the west coast so I find that highly unlikely). I do love the pattern, and the colours, and look forward to wearing it with a tee and my jean jacket this spring. Much like parenting, I'm letting go of the little mistakes so I can enjoy the process and the product.
