The brown/green thing is looking good. It got ripped and adjusted a few times, but now I think I've got it, by Jove!
The black thing grew in between ripping so I could have a frustration break. Why a f*# f@! anything is a break from frustration, I'm not really sure, but somewhere along the way this thing became nice to work on. Simple garter stitch, nicely smooth and Girly will love it once she finds out that it is hers.
