Happy Accidents

Have you ever had a crafting accident work out to be better than imagined? Made a mistake in a pattern and ended up liking your new version better? Ran out of yarn and had to adjust? Something that seemed like a bad color combo end up working up beautifully? A yarn that took forever to find the right project to showcase the beauty of the yarn on the ball?

I had this washcloth that I made awhile ago. I had run out of the color I was using and had to finish with a different color. It doesn’t exactly match, but it is close enough and it ended up giving it a ton of personality!

Post any happy accidents you have had!

I did that once on a stashbusting C2C blanket. I was so sure I had enough for a nice lap blanket and had to improvise. I was pleasantly surprised with the finished blanket.

I got too excited with how the pattern was turning out that I stopped reading the directions too early. The stitch was a 4 row repeat, not a 2 row repeat but it still looks cute!

That’s like what bob ross says Happy Mistakes.

Anyways so I was making a stingray but I didn’t have enough purple yarn so I just used some tutti frutti yarn and it turned out really snazzy.
