In search of the perfect mitten......

I honestly love this mitten pattern. I honestly consider myself an intermediate, even close to advanced, knitter........
and I honestly can't knit these mittens to save my life. I have now ripped them out (completely) twice. I.WILL.NOT.GIVE.IN.THE.MITTENS.WILL.NOT.WIN!

The colorwork is turning out fabulous. The chart is very straightforward. These mittens would be perfect if my hands were a foot long. Anyway back to the drawing board......with smaller needles....

I have some yummy batts to upload to the farm store. And I have a bit of an announcement to make: I will be moving the inventory from My8kidsmom Hand Dyed Yarn and Fiber to Counting Sheep Farm. My goal is to simplify life a bit and to minimize expenses. My8kidsmom will still be the brand name for my hand dyed yarn and fiber, it will just be all in one fabulous etsy shop!
