I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.
You can read the discussions we had during the Knit Along in the Fiber Factor group on Ravelry.
Here is an excerpt from the judging video for Challenge 6 in the Fiber Factor. At the beginning, I show the bag in detail…and then you can watch the judges discuss the design.
We only had about 2 weeks to complete our designs from beginning to end–including writing the pattern. I spent the entire first week working on a shawl and then changed my mind. The bag was done in only 8 days. The stress was INCREDIBLE!!!!
