This from the new Yarn Harlot Book. You know Stephanie, of the Yarn Harlot. You can google just as quick as I can link.
"When a sweater goes wrong, it's much more spectacular than a wayward scarf. You can laugh about a hat that came out weird for maybe 10 minutes, but an unexpectedly "unique" sweater never stops being funny (once you work through the period of grief and shock)" (187).
Oh that's so the truth. I have my "star trek" sweater, my flairing cuff hem sweater that was too small, the bulky cotton sweater attempt that turned out to be a shawl the size of Nebraska, the 2 fair isle sweaters with forearms that were too tight, the blue cardigan with the droopy fronts and the two small.
