I think I'm starting to hate them. I've knit two mittens, in an attempt to make the mouse mittens for Velociraptor but I keep running into problems.
You see, when I followed the pattern exact, needles and all, I ended up with a mitten for a baby. Not the 3-5 year old that the pattern said (or maybe my almost 4 year old has huge hands.. both I think). Obviously my gauge was way off, so I went up 3 needle sizes and followed exact and I ended up with a mitten that just fit him. As in, it's nice for now but since he's at that age where he just grows suddenly I'd be making a new pair by Christmas.
So I guess I'd better do my math and make another mitten, slightly bigger. I'm also tempted to buy a set of dpn's just cuz I have a bunch floating around but only in certain sizes, A wider range would be nice rather than this constant grab a pair when I need another size. Cheaper on the pocketbook too.
I have mostly finished at least one project also. It's the squatty sidekick purse, which I still need to felt and then find my copy of Interweave Felt to get how to make the button. Not sure where I left it *sighs* Gotta clean up around here. I've never been miss happy homemaker, though when I'm not working I can keep a pretty nice house. The rest of the time it's like a tornado hit.
