Nothing has to be perfect. If you find you have an extra stitch, knit 2 together somewhere. If you're short one, and you can't see where a dropped stitch is unravelling, then make another. It's an ipod sock--not a prom dress! Finish something in all it's glorious imperfection, and I guarantee no one will notice but you. Everything I've made has mistakes in it. I don't think I've every made anything perfect. I defy anyone but me to find them though. If it's noticeable, fix it. If it's only noticeable to you, compensate.

Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
