Definitively. This is my favourite colour - I have no idea why, it just is - Aubergine. Eggplant. Collective Wisdom of Team Blokes: Purple.
I just posted a description over at Ravelry that stated:
"If I pop my clogs unexpectedly, I would like it hereby recorded that I would like to be laid to rest on a thick bed of this yarn, in this colour.
Frankly, I do not give a damn whether this knit turns out the way that it should or not...
...I am going to wear this shrug, until they peel the very last snuggly shreds of its worn out, pilled yarn off me.
It is just how it is. Trust me - this yarn is soft and nice to work with. You would make the same promises - I am sure of it.
Actually, I have made a bit of a mistake in my knit and I am working out in my head how to remedy it - I could ignore it and put up with the comments that tell me that I was slack in my making - just get on, get it finished and wear it until it/I expire.
Please note that correcting the fault would involve cutting, unravelling rib, dropping a stitch to point of error, making good and then grafting back together with kitchener stitch.
Help! The chances of me completing this successfully alone - zero! Yet, I soooo want to have a go at the technique - such a quandry? I just know that I will stuff it up and ruin an otherwise, perfectly acceptable knit.
It is knitted, cuff to cuff. I 'just' need to sew up the arms, pick up stitches, then work the shrug shawl rib. Okay - so...carry on and live with the rib error?
Or risk stuffing up the complete knit in order to achieve 'perfection'?!
