This Is Not Going To Work

I had this vision of the hat and mitt set I wanted to make Caleb.  There's an absolutely beautiful stitch pattern in one of my stitch dictionaries, it uses two colours and it looks like a bed of starfish.  It was perfect, except it's not.

It's annoying and fiddly to work, and while I can totally get over those two things the actual fabric looks fine from a few feet but when it has holes similar to those found in crochet fabric, which is not what I'm going for.  So me and my stitch dictionaries have a date during Caleb's afternoon nap.  It's going to be great, it's grey and cool outside and I'm going to have tea and knitting stuff.

It's a pity, the hat looked so pretty in my head.
