What's the ugliest thing you've ever knitted?
I finished my first sock a few days ago and it is SO huge and hideous, I don't even want to take a pic of it.

So help me feel better and tell me all about the ugliest thing you've ever knitted - and completed!

My worst project was my first sock, too! It was and was the ugliest color, so many mistakes, and looked like it would fit Bigfoot. I laugh about it now, as my socks have gotten much better!

LOL- Well novelty yarn doesn't even look good in the skein, so I have no idea why anyone would want to knit with it...

So far I haven't knit anything terribly ugly- my first dishcloth was my worst. It was a Grandmother's favorite, and for some reason I thought I was supposed to add another YO two stitches before the end of the row, along with the YO at the beginning of the row.

Apparently that makes a diamond-ish, curvy boat shaped thing, lol.

A cable purse, using a Lion Brand pattern and wool-ease. Apparently my gauge was way off, so the bag turned out large enough for an Amazon woman. I posted pictures on the stashbusting kal.

The bag now hangs in my closet waiting to be made into something else.

A few years ago i thought i could knit a sweater without any pattern, just out of my head, ya know... So i have this HUGE, UGLY, SHAPELESS sweater made out of gorgeous eggplant colour mohair... Now that i get to think of that - maybe i should frog the whole thing? Any ideas for mohair projects?

This was supposed to be a straight scarf.

The pattern was wrong. The yarn was cheap acrylic sport weight, it was my first project, done on plastic needles. My stitches aren't even, and it's just fug. I didn't do a good job casting on or binding off with the ribbon.

You can see a picture of what the scarf is SUPPOSED to look like here.

Am famoos!

Well, I got about 90% of the way through Pinup Queen (in SNB Handbook), but for some reason I was double stranding neon green and dark purple Lionbrand microspun. I have no idea what possessed me, normally I have very good taste, lol. Fortunately, I ran into something I couldn't figure out (I was a new knitter at the time), and I put the project aside. When I picked it up again, I was like, "Oh no no no NO. No. Bad knitter. Bad, bad knitter." And I frogged it.

I am working on a pretty ugly blanket at the moment. It is supposed to be pretty, see? But I didn't plan out the color order ahead of time and it is looking gawdawful.

Just what everyone needs around the house, an ugly, NON machine washable afghan!
