Dead Sweater Office

I don't know how to put this exactly, so I am just going to go ahead and say it:  with anything I do, I definitely do not take the time to learn how to do it right.  I would rather do it wrong 10 times first to learn the right way.  Crochet is no different.  I am way too impatient to practice; I would prefer to think I know how to do it already and dive in.

And with that introduction, I give you like 14 hours of life wasted:
This was supposed to be a short-sleeved, scoop-neck sweater with flower detailing in the front.  I didn't have any books on how to do sweaters at the time (like 2 years ago??).  I just figured I would make some panels and sew them together or whatever.  Who knows what past Katie was thinking with this.

Anyways, it is time to clean out the closet so I took a pic of this and tossed it.  Bye bye attempted sweater.  You can see a similar concept of this sweater here.

When you say you "tossed it", you mean you pulled the yarn apart so you could reuse it, right?

I couldn't!! When I had made it I had woven in all the ends and double knotted like a crazy person, it was impossible to salvage it :-(
