Crochet Quote: Praising ugliness

Today’s crochet quote comes from a post on KnitPicks by Jenny C. who was writing about the ugly beautiful of her crochet.

“The lion’s share of my handiwork is cheerfully ugly, the natural conclusion of higher gauges, a bird-like level of concentration and all that aforementioned use of color. If a project goes as planned, it’s so delightfully unattractive that I’m pleased and repulsed in equal measure!”

What an interesting take on crochet. Thoughts?
