I hate frogging. So I have learned how to say, "I wanted it to look that way" in a very convincing manner. This even works on obvious boo boos, like putting both arm holes on the same side of the sweater. You call that "interpretive art." If your scarf is too long, just shrug and say, "you can wrap it around your neck one extra time to stay good and warm." And if you accidentally make an afghan way too short? Well...that's a baby blanket!
