i made this in either grade 6 or grade 8. sitting at the provincial science fair. yes. i was that kid. crocheting in a gymnasium full of the province's cream of the crop of middle school/junior high science fair extraordinaires.
my first blanket.
how i messed it up as much as i did... not quite sure!
i remember making it and being super frustrated that each section of color was getting narrower as it got bigger and realizing that i had not accounted for each color needing more yarn to be the same thickness as the color previous. lesson learned.
now looking at it i cringe.
but, for anyone that is critical of their skill at yarny things, this shows how even though i can literally crochet with my eyes closed (yes, i actually tried... and succeeded) starting out i was nowhere close to awesome. and this was already after YEARS of crocheting.
hugo claimed this bad boy when i was sorting through the linen closet so i get to see it every day now.
what was your first project? do you have any hilarious winners kicking around like this?
