Lace Obsessed fashion bugs

i find that every so often i go through phases of knitting. i am currently in a lace garment phase, squinting over yo's and psso's. its been fun figuring out new patterns and creating my own, only to have to pull it out and go back....ahh perfection.

now i have a question. how do you guys feel about ripping out your work to fix a mistake? i mean, i know if its a big mistake its worth it....to some people. i personally need to take out the work if its big. even sometimes if its small. it helps us to become better knitters, i think. learning how to fix boo boos allows us to become extraordin-hairy knitters.

speaking of hair, im off to figure out this wonderful new mohair lace bolero/shawl pattern.....should be exhilarating!

I usually rip and re-knit.

I usually rip and re-knit. Sometimes I'll come up with a creative pattern adjustment.

If it's a missed increase or decrease I just adjust things so I end up with the right number of stitches in the right number of places.

I have been known to frog whole garments because I didn't like the way they came out, but loved the yarn too much not to use it.
