Remember these? I was secretive about what I was doing with my granny squares in case I never got around to finishing them like with my other granny square projects. Not surprisingly, I finished the first mitt in late November or early December and the other one sat around for quite a while only half seamed with no edging. I finally dug them out this weekend and finished them up.

They’re pretty cute, but not really my style. I’m tempted to make myself a new pair without picots in colors that better suit me, but I’d have to either buy new yarn or use worsted weight to do that because I don’t have a lot of fingering and DK weight leftovers. They’d be a really quick project in heavy yarn so I might give it a go, but I think the teeny tiny granny squares really give these mitts a lot of character.

Anyways, the big break I took between crocheting the edgings has led me to a sad discovery. My crochet gauge is inconsistent. The edgings I worked during finals are neat and flat. The ones I worked over the weekend are loose and ruffly. I’ve always been proud of my consistent gauge in my knitting so finding out that my crochet isn’t nearly as even is a bit of a blow to my ego. I wonder if this is my project’s way of telling me that I need to crochet more?
