knitting failures

1. lace scarf- i started this before being assigned, and partner says no lace! i'm sorta glad though, because i want to finish it for me. so cute with my jean jacket! and my new felt flower pin!
2. this was supposed to be a hat with a roll brim. sigh. about this point i realized several things. the red yarn isn't the right weight, and i was missing the instructions for the decreases.
3. this may actually turn out, but i don't love it. k3p2 ribbed scarf, wool/acrylic blend.
4. this chenille mix sounded good in my brain, but not so great in person. the blue is too chunky for the red and aqua.

my problem is that i try to adapt yarns i like to projects i like, and they really never work out. so i still don't know what i will send her, and the deadline is, hmm, oh, today. soooo sorry!

What a wonderful blog! I love all the creative ideas. BTW, we "met" on swap bot during the blog swap.
