I was at a loss for Show & Tell ideas, so I tweeted about it. I got a suggestion back from My Reality: Show your ugliest _______.
I tend to not hang on to ugly stuff, but I have kept something y’all might consider ugly.
I stashed these away mmmmmm-ty years ago, shortly after I made them, and will probably never ever wear them, but still I can’t part with them. Here, Tessa and I model two sets of some of my very earliest creations.
Back in college, I got into knitting. Leg warmers were what I did then since at that point in my life couldn’t handle anything more complicated, what with boys and studies and boys and parties and boys and dating and classes and boys and all.
Here’s a closeup of the pattern.
I actually think these are very beautiful. Unfashionable, but beautiful.
Still, I won’t be starting an Etsy shop anytime soon.
