I am very annoyed with Happy Hooker right now.  I have all the errata and I got through everything all the way up to the palm, and it does not make sense for me.  I don't even know what my question would be, it just doesn't seem to make sense.  It sucks because those are gorgeous gloves, but I cannot for the life of me comprehend what the corrections mean in conjunction with the original. 

Plus, one weird thing that I can't figure out: in the beginning, after you finish up a row of the lace pattern, when you go back over it in sc you're supposed to have 50 stitches.  I CONSISTENTLY ended up with 45 stitches, though I always began the lace row on the correct number of stitches.  I just do not get it. 

Anyway, that's my rant.  Don't know if anyone else has found this to be true.  I'm going to try again at some point, and in the mean time I'll keep my eye on some of the other great projects to do in there.

I'm glad I'm not the only one totally irked by this pattern!  I'm in love with fingerless gloves and fell in love with this pattern.  I used the right yarn...  I counted stitches... And it didn't work!!!  Sad  I tried it a little while ago- so I don't remember off the top of my head what my counts ended up as- but I'm a decent crocheter- and just couldn't get it. 

If someone figures this glove out- HELP!!!!

Otherwise- I love the patterns in the book.  I made the sock puppet monkey blanket for a friend of mine who just had a baby- she says her husband tries to wrap himself up in it.  The suggested yarn is amazingly soft- and cheap!!!!  Had to go to a couple of stores to get what I needed, but it was well worth it!  And I also made myself a black cat iPod case- sans googly eyes- I just stitched eyes on instead.  (One of these days I'll post the pictures.)  I'm too busy making simple granny square baby blankets for everyone spitting out kids this year.  [/font]

Did you guys check the corrections on the website? Maybe there's something wrong with the pattern and they corrected it? I haven't tried the pattern out for myself, so this is all I can think of right now.
