I had knitted a sweater from cotton for myself and didn't realize at the time that I should be using a smaller needle - and the top just didn't look good at all: (it IS pink, by the way!)
And I wore it one last time just to make sure - and finally decided to make it into something else - something that would be more useful! So, the sweater became this:
And then those balls became these - 8 hats for the cancer hospital plus a dish cloth and a small round something, perhaps a coaster?!
It was fun - and I hope they are useful!
