TOO BIG



One of my knitting resolutions this year is to knit the Fiddlehead Mittens.  I started them last week and today I decided to try to finish up the outer portion of the first one.  I thought they might be a little large because I have small hands but I kept knitting thinking that when I got the liner in they would be perfect.  Nope.  It didn't work out that way.  I started the decreases on the top and realized that the mitten was going to be about two inches too long.  I have decided to rip them out and try them again on a size smaller needle.  I think they are really pretty though.

Yes, they are pretty! Don't you hate it when you have to rip?! At least you can start over... not like when you cut fabric too small :)
