Sometimes those small mistakes are what really make the piece nicer. My mom had hand-knit a sweater when she was in college. Turns out, she ran out of yarn and had to buy a little more yarn. Unfortunately, while it was the same color (supposedly the same shade of blue), it was a different lot number, so it was a little "off" from the rest of the sweater. I got to wear the sweater for a couple of years, and thought that the "off"-ness was part of what made it cool.

I really wish I knew whatever happened to that sweater. Would love to have it, since Mom passed away six years ago.
