Well, I stuck with this mitten, I'm not giving up. I want to make a pair. I ripped it all the way back to the cuff and began again. I just had to READ the instructions to make it work. DUH! My only problem now is to keep the rows together when knitting in the round. I hate when it zags.
So it's going to take me a while to get to the end of the pattern. My gauge is 10 stitches per inch. Teeny tiny. And, just think, I have to make another one! LOL
This is so embarrassing but my dog had his grooming appointment and physical today. He got the works. (Every 6 months) But he certainly has not been very happy when we picked him up. I actually felt sorry for him. He looks devastated. I did have a laugh when we picked him up (he was scalped). But now after really looking at this poor dog, he looks awful, pitiful. He lost his cuteness. He's a long haired Chi and probably should have never been cut like this. When he was younger he had a beautiful skirt that reached the floor. Then DH took him to the groomer. I'm not going to tell him that I hated it. I like the natural look. Oh, well. One unhappy puppy.
He didn't even like me to take his picture. He looks so sad. Poor puppy. I better get back to my knitting and hopefully his hair will grow back over night. Ya think?
He doesn't look very cute. Sad.
