In taking inventory of my stash, I found a few (OK more than a few, you have them too) sad, sad, skeins of yarn that I would never, in my right mind, have purchased - most of them hand-me-downs from my non-knitting friends (and their dearly departed relatives). I have knitting books where there is not a single pattern I would ever waste time (or yarn) making. Which led, in my warped mind, to the things I have wasted time making. That first sweater where I didn't take time to check my gauge. The infant star sweater that languished in "On the Needles" land for far too long and ended up with a 6-12 month body and 0-6 month sleeves.
For this contest, I want to know about your worst knitting disaster. Accidentally seamed the sleeve to the body? Knit 3/4 of a sweater using two different sized needles? Pictures are a definite plus. I'll pick the best stories and have my blog reading masses (we all have dreams) vote on the winners. All entries must be received via comment or email by 11:59pm EST July 20, 2007.
Now for the prizes...
+ 3 skeins Cascade 220 (enough to make this)
Five (yet to be made - see picture of beads below) stitch markers
