See this hat? I made it tonight. I made it without a pattern. I made it without really knowing how to pick up stitches to finish off the second ear flap. I made it with a poof/pom-pom without ever really having made one, but today I did.
I’m feeling quite accomplished. Never mind that I still have 3 things to make for Christmas gifts. Never mind that I should be starting the other gifts instead of blogging about this one. Never mind that this hat is so warm it will feel like you’re getting a sun burn on your head in the dead of winter (it is for someone who will be in Montana for a while). I’m just feeling good that I finished something that wasn’t a scarf, cheater hat, or wrist warmers.
I’m proud of myself… at least for the moment.
But seriously guys, check out that pom-pom!
