A sad day

It has finally happened. I have a FO that I am not posting a pic of. And this is not due to the camera's batteries being uncharged or general laziness on my part (i.e., the normal reasons). Nope. This is because I have an FO that I do not like. In anyway, whatsoever. Which is a shame because my productivity has plummeted lately and I wish I could show some kick-butt pic to keep you all from losing faith in me.

Sigh.

For the record, I knit a headband to match the fingerless mitts I made my mother back in July and which are her Christmas gifts. Still love the color of the yarn and the yummy softness of it. But the headband really is just blah. I think it is too wide and too long (which is hard to know for sure since I don't have my mom's head to try it out on... but I am pretty sure). And I am not crazy about the ribbing on it, either. So I am chalking this one up as a failure, even though it is complete. The real question is, should I still give it to her? I need to cogitate on this one!

BTW, apparently everybody who took the Nicole quiz came up as Satine. So.... all of us knitters and crocheters are either secretly pining to sing in the Moulin Rouge or the quiz is busted!

Don't be sad - it happens! You can never know if the item you make will turn out to be right. That is part of the fun. I have several items made I am not proud of, too. Start making something else, then maybe return to that headband and think if it can be salvaged. Was it made in the round?

Aw, don't worry. It happens to the best of us.
