What are you most proud of? That I actually got them all done and mailed out before Christmas. She actually got the cowl before they left.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hove fun. I made a few mistakes but learned how to fix those mistakes form you tube. I was scared of dropped stitches, but now I know how to handle them so I am not scared anymore.

I love them for the classroom or even home. You can read or text with them on. The first pair I got a couple of years ago had thumbs and I couldn't read with them on. But with no thumbs I can read and I like them longer so the go under the jacket to keep the wrists warm as well.

Reply to this comment...m liking knitting better now because it is more 2 handed than crocheting. I do find it harder to follow the you tube videos with knitting but they definitely help when I don't know the abbreviations. The hat gave me a lot of practice with the knit and purl stitches. I like the small projects that finish quickly. I've also discovered that blocking after you finish helps to even out the stitches and make it look a lot neater.
