not exactly how I pictured it

As a kid I was fascinated by the Consumer's Distributing catalogue. Hours were spent examining product photos to visualize the things exactly - how big, how attractive and how useful. Photos can be very deceptive, and often reality fell very far short of my imaginings.

As a knitter, I do much the same thing. Based on pattern photos I try to visualize a finished product with the textures and colours of the yarns I'm using. And sometimes the results aren't as hoped ...a terrible disappointment considering the hours invested in the project.

No final judgment yet - it's too early to tell. But, it really looks an awful lot like a rastafarian hat. And not so much like a market bag.
