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!

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? http://www.canknit.com/free/ns.html 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!

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.

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.

Sorry Stine ... but the fact that it was meant to be straight and it turned out like that has made me
