FFFFFFFFFingerless Mitts

I always think that if I commit to something, I really need do my best to comply.  I know we do have life outside of this cyber world but I usually encourage my kids to follow true on their word.
But boy, this month was hard for me on our back to blogger challenge, because I had nothing, nada, niet, rien... 
I wanted to change things a bit, come out of my comfort zone and try something different, but not, here I am with my knitting.
So without further ado,
My fingerless mittens
This was made with 49 stitches, 24 stitches on each side,
one for the thumb with increases before and after that stitch, until desire size.



Siempre pienso que si me comprometo con algo, realmente necesito hacer todo lo posible para cumplir. Sé que tenemos vida fuera de este mundo cibernético, pero generalmente animo a mis hijos a que sean fiel a su palabra.

Caring Sharing Tuesday - 001

I have decided to make Tuesdays the day of sharing.

me: are you ok? you look a bit pale
firstborn: I feel I can't breath
me: why? are you stress?
 firstborn: I still can't come to terms seen you unraveling something you
           have worked so hard all these past evenings.  I have seen you doing this
           a hundred of times but it gives me anxiety just all the wasted work.

me: you are cute!, go make yourself a tea, maybe one for me too!

This conversation we have had a whole bunch of times with my firstborn, she finds it uncomfortable seeing me unraveling a project that I have knitted and do not like the result I'm getting.  I'm a bit of a control freak and perfectionist.  I cannot see errors on my knits, I rather unravel and start again.
I know lots of people would say "you can't even tell" but I know, I know it is there and it was not suppose to.  Or the shape is wrong, or the material is wrong, or the colour is not right.
My question is, is it only I or other knitters d…
