RIP Ugly Pink Sweater

One of the projects I briefly mentioned when I wrote that post about all that pink yarn was the first thing I ever tried to make with it, an off the shoulder pink sweater. I was so excited. It was my first big project and my first sweater. Unfortunately, it didn't work out so well. As I mentioned before, the front and back were different sizes and the whole thing was too loose. I would probably never wear this sweater in public.

Today, since I started to run out of yarn for my grandmother's birthday present (more on this later), I started frogging it. It was a bit of a cathartic experience. I suppose it's better to use that yarn for something that will get used instead of something that will lie in the bottom of my cupboard, but it still kind of hurts to see all that work disappear so quickly. *sigh*

Here's a pick of that ugly sweater (it doesn't look as bad as it was in this picture), so that I can always remember my mistakes.
