I finally finished the gauntlets that I've been working on for just about forever. The opera length fingerless mittens have been knit and ripped back, and knit and frogged, and knit and reshaped enough times that I could have made enough pairs for my entire family! I even managed to finish the last inch in red.
It was hard, but a good lesson in stepping out of my comfort zone. It took me about a week to build up the courage to knit the last inch of one mitten in red for my good friend. I even darned in all the ends and clipped off the snippets. Then they rested on the back of my sofa for a few days. I just couldn't do it. I carefully picked out the end, ripped back the red and reworked the last inch in black. As it should be.
