Okay, I changed my mind. I'm going to make Headline News out of SNB Nation instead of the Later Gator Mittens. I will probably make those too, but I really want a hat. And since I was just at Hobby Lobby (and they are NOT open on Sundays, facists), I ordered a few sheets of plastic canvas via ebay. I didn't want to pay $5.00 for shipping from Joanns or somewhere online, and I was REALLY trying to be good to not buy any yarn.
I swatched this morning with some Cotton Ease (my last little ball, so sad) and it looks like it should work.
