Sleeve Carnage!

Announcer 1: Are we back on track for regular Inishmore updates, Bob?
Announcer 2: Well, there was an upset last night, Bob. Amy had been hoping to knit a clean sleeve, but as I've marked with my Special Commentator Pen, she committed a technical fault of the most glaring kind.
Announcer 1: I think it's kind of hard to see, Bob.
Announcer 2: Well, Bob, the judges don't think so. She twisted a cable the wrong way. She's made this mistake before but has always managed to recover by laddering down from the next few rows and re-knitting. But she didn't catch this one until about twenty rows later, and laddering that far will have a serious impact on her schedule and temper.
Announcer 1: So what's she going to do, Bob?
Announcer 2: Apparently she's going to just leave it, Bob, and repeat that saying about always leaving a mistake in your work so the gods don't get jealous.
Announcer 1: Probably wise, Bob, with the clock ticking here in Day 13. We take you now to the exciting Nordic Combined Steeking in progress.

    Bob, if you hadn't bothered with the commentator pen, we wouldn't have notices. As Amy also always says, 'if you won't notice it from the back of a galloping horse, it doesn't count as a mistake'. I may be paraphrasing.

    Well, Amy says that, but inside her head is that nagging voice saying "It's not perfect! How can you stand it?!?" And it's on a sleeve, too, which means that it will be Always Visible and a Perpetual Reminder of Failure!

    Or she can just relax a bit and take her own advice. :)

    What will royally frost her shorts, though, is if she doesn't finish *and* has a sweater with a Mistake.

    Stupid hockey.

    Always remember that most-useful phrase from the Castle Theatre days - "It won't read"
