Sunday Swatch will look very familiar to those of you who are joining us for the Afghan Knitalong.  I thought I’d try Square Two, the “Do The Wave” block in different colors than my original color choice, just for kicks.

Why different colors?  Well, we now have not one, not two, but THREE different people at Universal Yarn working on the Rocky Shore colorway selection.

Once again, all their blocks are different.  But still – sometimes you want to mix things up a bit.

There’s something else different about the colorful block.  It contains a noticeable mistake.  The pattern itself is just fine, it’s just that I wasn’t paying close attention as I worked.  So the choice before me was whether to unravel or to keep going.

These blocks are meant to be a learning experience, so that’s how I approached the decision.  When I look at the finished afghan, do I need it to be perfect?  Or will I enjoy looking at it and thinking about about the experience of making it?

In the end, I decided to let it go.  It will be one block among many, so it probably won’t stand out.  I’ll let this block be a lesson in accepting imperfection.

We’ll be back next week with block number three in our Afghan Knitalong.  See you then!
