I had an idea for some mittens with a cable crochet owl on them, that didn't work so I thought I'd just make a plain pair. Turns out you need to make mittens with a bit more room than you'd think. So then I thought 'oooooh, I'll make them with chevrons in' - turns out you REALLY need the right number of foundation stitches to make that work, you can't just wing it.
So I'm having a break.
I'll try again tomorrow.
Instead here's a picture of a baby beaver to make me feel better.
