Without further rambling, here are some things that I did finish. I saw this adorable set in a magazine when I went to Portland for the wedding last fall. I just had to make them for my DD's friend's baby boy. It is a Panda bear hat and mittens. I had a little ooops with the hat. I knit the hat. Knit the ears. Put the ears on the hat. Crooked and in the wrong place. Snipped them off carefully. Put one ear back on and looked at hat. I didn't like the placement so I started to snip the ears off again. Cut right through the hat.
Being frustrated and not sure how to fix a hole that big, I tossed it and started again. I am happy with it now.
I started small, coasters, plain and appliqued.
Wouldn't it be a cute shower gift with a couple of potholders?
