I just spent the last hour frogging the snowman hat. Dammit.
Anyway, I am stitching with 28 size needles. This is my standard. They aren't petites, just plain DMC from Michaels. I was thinking something was wrong, because they just felt thin and flimsy, then realized what it was. I have been working with size 24s for the tabletopper, and so I am not used to spindly needles. It's gonna take a few days to get used to this.
