not all FOs are winners

This explosion of FO posts lately has been due primarily to the fact that I had accumulated a bunch of FOs throughout the last year but had not had an opportunity to take photos of them. But for this one in particular I had another reason: I’m simply not crazy about it. I’m even tempted to rip it. But then I keep thinking someone else might like it?

I decided to knit the Antelope Hat mainly because I loooooved the version by porsu. The colour, the combination with a cowl, the styling, I love it all! Her hat looks like a beautiful cakey thing!

But my version is just not doing it for me. The shape is weird (one isn’t quite sure as to how to wear it) and the texture is too busy (even though I really loved the pattern!). So I have no idea what to do with it. For now, I’m just trying to repeat the mantra: “Not all FOs are winners. And that’s ok.”

p.s. More on the orange thingie soon! ;)

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
