My Booze & Yarn attendance has been pretty piss-poor lately, but I want to save this Knitty article with its list of DIY fixit tutorials for future reference. In the meantime, author David Demchuk's About-the-Author-cum-confessional cracked me up:

David has been making mistakes in his knitting for more than 20 years. He has made frightful design and colour choices, has knit yurts instead of sweaters when he hasn't swatched for gauge, has confused his numbers and knit two sizes at the same time for the back of a cardigan, has grafted thumbs inside out onto gloves, has seamed the outside of a hat by mistake, and once came very close to making a sock with a toe at each end. He is not too proud to ask for your pity.
