I am over halfway done with my daughter's pair also!
Yes those are a lot of ends!!!! I haven't been weaving them in, just tying off and clipping the extra.

If you are a parent of young children you know what I mean! (cough-bribery-cough)
On Instagram I decided to participate in the "yarn love challenge", which is just a photo challenge thing for the month of February. So far my pics are mostly rainbow mittens, but I am trying to branch out!!! Here's a recap of the first four days:
If you want to follow along the rest of the month you can click over to my instagram in the sidebar to the right! :) Oh and I just saw that I now have over 50 followers!!! Wow! I might have to come up with some sort of giveaway or something. Hmmm!
