I found an old "passed down from generation to generation" hat pattern for a Newfoundland Salt-n-Pepper cap and so I decided to give it a try in cream coloured acrylic yarn for my mom (she's sensitive to wool). Here's the finished cap:
It turned out pretty good and my mom loves it. Mission accomplished.
Except what she doesn't know is that I HATED the pattern. In fact, when I was done making the hat, I threw the pattern in the garbage(well actually in the recycling-but you get the point). Now she wants another one in a different colour. Hmm, I guess I could knit it again. I'll have to think about it.
Do ever have that? Something you make that you didn't like but others did?
