Your girls are adorable! I agree with you that often times it is easier to rip out than to figure out how to correct.
I started knitting a fun fur last night using eye lash yarn. Thought that would be difficult as the eye lash is long. I am so proud of myself due to the fact i have not made a mistake SO FAR, which is a GOOD thing for me.
Hope to have that finished tonight. Snow, snow and more today so i am staying inside to keep warm.
