The Ugly Baby
My super secret project is over. And no longer super secret. Why? Because the project is so ugly. I am very disappointed in all aspects of this project. The colors, while looking gorgeous wrapped up in skein, did not go well together. On top of that mistake, the pattern I chose highlights the colors in all the wrong ways. This project was intended to be a gift but now has forever home with me and the cats.
Then, a miracle happened. Or maybe it is just the natural outcome of spending so much time with the project. Like a mother who births a less-than-adorable baby, I started to love this ugly project.
The colors are not well represented in this picture but even if they were it would not make this any better. I have analyzed my choices and believe that this particular ripple pattern is appropriate with three colors or less.
Remember, just like any good mother, I am allowed to describe my progeny (taking serious liberties with the definition) as ugly, less-than-perfect, or even hideous, but all others be warned should they voice the same opinion.
My next lap afghan looks great on paper.
