The end?

5 projects is an acceptable number… right?

I think as long I only have projects it’s ok to stop the project???

10 things to tell a College Freshman

1. Going to class really is that important
2. Going home is a great time to eat real food and wash clothes – otherwise campus is more fun.
3. Staying up all night to study is not worth it.
4. You might hate your college roommate or you may be best friends… either way is ok.
5. Join clubs and be active… college is an experience.
6. Study abroad if possible.
7. Take one class each semester that is either fun or not related to your major… yoga, flower arranging… whatever.
8. There is more to life than getting into medical school.
9. The professors really are there to help you, office hours can save your grade – use them.
10. Enjoy it – being an adult is over rated.

Mittens of doom.

This blog post brought to you by special request by the one and only Jacie.

Last night I decided to try to finish the peekabo mittens. Finishing mitten two after two year should be no problem right… (have I learned nothing yet from this project…well that’s a different story all together.)

Let’s start off on how wrong everything went.

1. The pattern was originally on MagKnits now as a free Rav Download. (this is important for number 2)
2. Some how either the pattern changed or I decided to change the ribbing (who knows what really happened – we all know I can’t read patterns), and this now involves me doing math, and well that’s just NOT going to happen.
3. I wrote that I used size 6 DPNs. I don’t own size 6 dpns… so who knows what I really did.
4. I started with 7’s… nope not the right ones.
5. Then I tried my size 4’s in the second size….oh it’s only 1.5 times bigger than said first mitten.
6. The first mitten is probably an inch too short to begin with.
7. All in all FAIL.

So yeah… what should have taken a few hours is now a giant ball of disaster. I have one mitten that’s an inch too short and one that’s 3/4 done and too wide.

Do I cut my loses or really take the time to make a matching mitten?

I cast on the exception to the rule Jacie gave me as a going away present….

Who wants to guess what it was and in what yarn? Not like there aren’t a million possibilities.
