So...my sister asked me to knit her a hat, scarf and some mitts for Christmas. I'm still not a skilled knitter so I am staying away from anything too lacy for the scarf and the hat will be a basic toque with a pompom (at her request) but I'm worried about the mitts. I'm really not too good with dpns and am hoping to avoid them unless absolutely necessary (like at the very top of the hat, until that point I'm using my short circ.).
My question is this...are there any negatives I should know about when it comes to knitting mitts "flat" as opposed to on dpns? Are mitts knit in the round better? That is, should I just whip my lazy butt into shape and do them that way?
Also, has anyone here knit "Wavy" from Knitty? It seems everyone ditched it for Wavy Gravy from SNBN but I want to know if anyone did complete it and maybe apprx how long it took them.
Edited: because I can't spell.
