When we take the time and effort to make a gift for someone, it really stinks when it doesn't turn out well. That was the case with last night's project - a "nurse" dishcloth that I knit for a very special nurse I know and love. I was about 10 rows from the end before realizing that it didn't look like a nurse
(or at least it didn't look like much of a nurse to me). This is what I had:

So... what did I do? Well, I ripped it out, of course! Yeah, it was a lot of work down the drain, but better to use the cotton for something that I would give, rather than just have it stuffed in a box somewhere.

Speaking of things that don't look like what I expected, here's another example. Now, before I show it to you, I should say that it looks just like it should and also just like everyone else's (I looked on Ravelry), but I'm just not happy with it. So, here for your browsing pleasure I present "Flutterby Fairy", a.k.a. Tinkerbell:

Either way I turned it (it's supposed to be designed for either side), it just didn't look as much like Tinkerbell as I expected it to. Oh well...

How about that bib I showed you in my last post? Yeah, I finished it and I'm happy with that! Wow, yeah I said I'm happy with something I made, ha ha. I am definitely going to make more of these, they're just so darn cute!
What do you think of this?

While I'm showing projects, here is a cloth I made for my granddaughter for her 8th birthday, since she loves to skate!

Until next time... happy crafting and here's to your projects coming out the way you picture them to be!
