I am waddling around thinking about what preparations need to be made for me to make it to work. ALL of them...eeew.
I made a little hot pink hat, covered in cables with a rib stitch brim, and a pom pom on top for a girl at work who's got a new grandbaby. Trying..trying..to make mittens. I feel it's not so much as I'm stupid as I haven't stumbled across the right pattern. I think I can fake several together.
I am enjoying the double pointed needles, though. The problem is I'm no good at knowing what size my unmarked needles are and if I can make a proper gauge swatch. Ugh. One thing at a time. Not long ago I looked at stitch markers, double pointed needles and cables as out of my realm of capability. Now, easy breezy.
