Back when I was 8, my very first knitting project was supposed to be a gorgeous soft purple baby blanket. Easy enough, right? It’s just a square!
I used Lions Brand Homespun yarn (mistake #1), small needles (mistake #2) and didn’t have an exact measurement in mind (mistake #3).
The final result was two rectangles that I “sewed” together to create the size I wanted. The seam was terrible and sloppy and the blanket ended up being an awkward size that would never fit swaddling an infant. I kept it up until a year ago where I donated it to a homeless shelter.
We see so many beautiful works of fiber art come across our dashes that I think we forget to celebrate the ugly knits that made us who we are today.
What is the ugliest/worst thing you ever made?Was it purposefully ugly or was it purely by mistake, like me? Bonus points if you have pictures!
