Up Cycling the Hand Knit Disaster

I am sure the person knitting this masterpiece did not think it would merit attendance to this evenings Ugly Sweater Birthday Party.

This makes its ugliness all that more amusing… or tragic.

Some one sat there for uncounted hours, and thought grey, white, purple, mauve, periwinkle blue, rust orange, pee yellow and two shades of brown would all go together in one un-shapely mass of a hand knit sweater.

Then they thought to decorate that mass with horizontal ridges…

And for $2.50 this sweater was mine at the Thrift store.

The best part was the elderly lady behind the counter admiring my find.

Maybe she had an ugly sweater party…  but probably she just wanted it for herself.
