Now I'd been looking enviously at the mittens other talented craftsters had made... and thought "I could do that"....
well i collected together some pretty wool (the colour of refreshers) and added stripes - well a girl's gotta have stripes...
I figured that if I knitted the two shapes I could sew them together... so i dutifully measured my hand and turned up with this Smiley


so i sewed it together (i'm not much of a sewer either) and didn't know whether to laugh or cry when i put it on Smiley

Enjoy!

this is probably the greatest thing i've ever seen. i totally know the "i can do this!!"  feeling, almost instantly followed by the "what the hell have i done??" feeling. and even if they're not what you initially wanted, they're at least a good conversation piece! and i love the colors you used.

also, if you want to try again, here's a decent pattern for striped mittens. good luck!

I have a similarly ridiculous "mitten," which was my third knitting project. Definitely keep it. My mitten makes me feel better when I have to, say, frog almost an entire back of a sweater because I knitted the stripes in the wrong order. Not that I've ever done that, or anything.

I've never done something quite like that, but I have a habit of just casting on and going for it. So, for example, hats have turned out far too big for even my gigantic-headed boyfriend, or have looked like nothing more than a tea cosy.

... At least I got a tea cosy out of it, right?

I'm so sorry but I am on the floor about those, that's so tragically hilarious!! Definitely keep them! They fall perfectly into the trying-so-hard-that-theyre-awesome category.

Although I shouldn't be laughing as about 90% of the things I create fall into that category as well.
