I have no qualms and offer no apologies and rip, rip and rip. I know myself too well and I will focus on nothing but that mistake. I will even lose sleep over it. Not the greatest quality but that is how I roll. You will not get a gasp from me, love. Congratulations on ending the never ending scarf. What an amazing feeling and now a truly perfect stunning scarf. :)
