Fear of failure and perfectionsim

My two knitting projects are finished....I feel that I have also overcome a character flaw in my approach to knitting. Doing the squares for the orphans blankets was a no brainer...I can knit rows and cast on and off.

But these other two - fingerless mittens and the beanie - I had to give myself some serious talking to to get them done. But they are done, flaws and all. So I humbly post my first attempt at knitting something other than a square...

The fingerless mittens are a winner for my little pianist and for me while working here when my hand freeeezes on the mouse. The second pair is half way there! Only 4 more pairs to go and we will all have some!

Baby Beanie, modelled here by Myley Build-A-Bear :-) Now that I have learnt how to knit them, I can teach it to my younger daughter for her to start her outreach project.

As to our squares we are now 32 squares in to our 100 square goal.

Two great projects. Yes, the fingerless mittens are wonderful. I remember cutting fingers off of gloves when I played the clarinet in the band in High School. Your baby hat is sweet, too, and such a good project to learn to knit and learn to give.
