I spend quite a lot of time browsing when I’m not knitting – for all the lovely things I can make when I have time and perhaps grow a couple of pair of spare knitting arms. And for some reason, it suddenly occurred to me (I’m not unique! Have a look at this blog – What Not to Knit) that there must be a list of things that should just never be attempted.
I don’t mean to belittle people’s efforts, or sound superior. But, really?! I’m not surprised that some men run screaming for the hills when it’s suggested that they put on something hand-made.
Sorry, but anything that is designed to get wet on a regular basis should not be knitted. Lycra HAS been invented after all. I run a family friendly blog but if you’re interested in current creations, there are plenty of eye-poppingly wrong stuff out there!
I love Christmas. I really dislike Christmas jumpers. I think anything taking so many hours of work needs to be worn more than once per year. So don’t make it so horrendous and wear it with pride not as a joke.
Too much colour. Too many patterns. Just too much.
Anything extreme from any of the decades – need I say more?
And in case crocheters were starting to feel superior, here are two definitely not to do projects.
