Perfection to a Fault?

Is it crazy that I'm taking this apart because I decided it's 4 stitches too narrow and 2 stitches 4 st 6 stitches too short on the bottom? (notice the different pattern versions in the background :P )

And look, it's reversible!

Sigh, can't finish a scarf if I can't even get it started.

But in the meantime, here are a couple of pics of a recently finished project: fingerless mitts to match my brown stripy scarf! These were done quick and dirty because it suddenly got cold a couple of weekends ago. Tried to recreate the XO pattern on the first attempt, but it looked too sloppy, so I stuck with a simple stockinette for the most part. Had just enough leftover yarn to make the mittens. They're a little worse for the wear now, but soooo warm. Plus, I can still knit while wearing them!

"action" shot :P

Catching up with...

Whoops, way behind on this blog. October was a busy month for me... I think I've started and finished like 5 mini-projects since my last post. Here's one of them:

The one on the left was requisitioned over 6 months ago, but I finally got to it. It became a birthday present. :P

More to come...
fingerless mitts, scarves, and water bottle holders, oh my!
