Experienced knitters don't make fewer mistakes than new knitters. They make bigger ones faster.

In the midst of 2 rather large projects (CPH and Dreamcatcher), I made a few small projects to get my sense of accomplishment back. I just felt like I'd never finish a project. For the love of Pete, just let me finish something! Not only did I finish 4 projects, but I knocked out some stash yarn too!

First is the Felicity Hat. I used the Artyarns Supermerino I received in a Christmas swap. The pattern is very clear and easy to follow. The top is a little, uh, poofy, but i'm sure it will work out once I start wearing it. Since I had a ball left over, I also made some Easy Fingerless Mitts to match. Now I just need it to be cold again so I can wear them. But don't worry Mother Nature, there's no rush.

I also finished a cable hat that I semi-designed. It's in bulky weight yarn, and I thought I had my gauge right. Apparently, I did not. It turned out WAY too small. So does that mean I just finished a Christmas present 6 months early? Score.

And finally I've started a Doctor Who dishcloth set. Nothing is more satisfying than starting and finishing a project in about an hour.
