No New Items Today

I've been working on two projects, and spent most of today working on one of them--a cowl-style neck warmer that was turning out really well...until it came off the needle and I realized it was too big. So, I folded part of it over and tried sewing a couple buttons in place to shrink it down and add a little decoration. It looked gorgeous laid out flat, but hideous when worn. Grrrr. The other item I made was a fuzzy scarflette...which turned out okay, but just doesn't do it for me, so it's being put aside for now. The neck warmer...well, it's probably going to find its way into the trash.

Now I'm feeling a little blank as to what I'm going to make next...I'll probably take the rest of today off and maybe the weekend as well.

So, now it's your turn--What's your biggest mess-up story and what did you do about it?

My first attempt at knitting and felting a bag didn't turn out too well. It ended up too long and skinny! It was pretty cool though, tight and fuzzy, but I couldn't find a use for it. :o(
