Perfect Enough

The Tale of the Sweater Gone Bad has come to an end. Becky has fixed the too long sleeve and brought the sweater back to the shop for display. She ripped out 4” of sleeve (after verifying three or four times it was the correct sleeve) and knit the cuff in the round. It's not perfect. But it's perfect enough. And her dad tried the sweater on and loved it. He even said the too long sleeve was fine and she should not bother fixing it – he'd just roll it up. He's a good dad.

Have you ever decided a project was perfect enough? What mistakes are you willing to leave in? Which ones do you rip out?
