First of all, HOORAY for taking the plunge!!!!!! It takes guts to tackle something intimidating
Aren't you making that for your grandchild? And your daughter doesn't want anything knitted...especially if it's not perfect???
Here's what I think... not that you asked...
Finish that project and give it to your grandbaby. And forget what your daughter thinks about it. You are not making it for her. Do not let her rob you of the joy of making this. We cannot allow our children (especially our daughters) to make us feel like we aren't good enough.
You have a wonderful, big, sweet heart that seems to overflow with love for those around you. If she can't recognize or accept that love, in whatever form it comes in (knitted goodies, etc.), then share it with her child (or children, if there are more than one).
Sorry to preach. It just makes me angry to hear what you're going through.
Now, take pictures of your FO so we can oooohhhh and aaaaahhhh over it with you.
