Promised pictures of Mitts

I told you if I got the pictures that my dd took of my first pair of fingerless mitts that I would post them. So here they are. I think they turned out pretty good for the first time. Just don't look really close at the thumb! LOL

As you've probably noticed I still have my computer! It isn't smelling today. Is that a good sign? I sure hope so! I would really miss being able to get online.
This morning was my Tuesday craft club. I hadn't quite finished the second mitt of the second pair that I'm making, but I took it with me. Everyone loved the one that was made and the crocheted pair was also a favorite with some! I decided not to work on it, because I couldn't do that and talk. So I worked on the petal dishcloth. I thought I was safe with that. I'd worked on one at club before and it turned out fine. I had my paper so that I could cross of the row I had done and everything. Well, I was wrong. When I finished the one petal it looked bigger!! LOL Guess I forgot to cross off a couple of rows. he he So tonight I'll be doing some frogging. I've never frogged a knit piece. I may end up messing up the whole thing and having to start it over again! Oh well, that's the way it goes sometimes.
Speaking of frogging, I had to do that to my current tapestry crochet project yesterday. Everything was going well, then all of a sudden each side had an extra stitch at each end! I couldn't figure out what I had done to make that happen. So I frogged it and did it again. When I went to do the next row, I had the same problem. For the life of me I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong! Finally after studying the pattern, I realized that I didn't have extra stitches after all. I was doing the following pattern wrong! Duh!! Sometimes I feel so stupid! This was one of them. Now I've got it all straight in my mind and it will go fine until my brain freezes up on me again. (hope it's not soon)
Well, I'm off to finish the thumb on my last mitt, then pick out my next project!

oooooooooooooooooh, that is so frustrating!

What yarn did you use on that adorable fingerless mitt??? Love how the colors worked up (and your work, that goes without saying)

Glad to hear your computer odor has left!
