Alright, I have been trying to stash bust because as I've posted here before I have an addiction to clearance yarn. So I have basically bought stuff that I either a) don't have enough for that "really cool new project" or b) is suitable for little more than hats and scarves. I am tryin to get throught the bulk of it so I can move on to bigger and better things. So I have a ton of half skeins of lion brand homespun from when I first learned to knit. I decide hey that would be perfect for my three year olds new winter gear. I find an adorable pattern in a magazine and go to town getting it done. I am watching Firefly for the first time and paying no attention just knitting. First I complete the hat,
 

Ok not too bad a little big no problem. Now while still watching Firefly the mitten,

That's my hand. That's supposed to fit a three year old. Yah ok. So I knit that much without noticing, I sat there debating whether or not I needed mittens, realized it was ridiculous and frogged. So I learned my lesson check your gauge, do not knit watching DVDs that never end without checking, and don't curse too much at your own stupidity at 2am because you will wake up the little people that live wth you. Hope you like the hat and appreciate the mitten as much as I did.

You poor thing!! I would have been so mad at myself, I wouldn't have been able to look at that yarn for at least a week. But at least you made a cute hat!! Grin

To be honest boleyn I haven't been able to pick it up since. I used that whole experience as an excuse to learn to crochet (to calm down from the knitting  Wink ) and make strawberry mango jam. My daughter loves her hat, and that's all that matters. I will attempt the mittens again sometime soon.
