|16 completed hats|
I started this project on the 21st of April and completed the last hat on May 2nd. I am very happy that I got them all completed and my mom actually knit two hats for me so that if I needed them I could use them. They are in a separate spot right now to be used to help meet future requests from this charity.
Did I really think I would get them done ahead of time? No, I didn't because once I realized that I had to knit over a hat a day I thought that I was crazy even thinking I could meet this goal. Having hockey games, baseball games and the Royal Wedding on TV did really help me focus on getting the hats done. Also having a husband that understood that I really wanted to try and get the hats done also helped because when I was getting closer to finishing he would just say "stitch, stitch, stitch" to make me laugh and I realized that he was happy to see me doing something that I truly love doing.
My passion is my crafts as well as writing so being able to lose myself in my crafts has felt good. Now I need to get back to Crown of Squares and see how it goes. It won't be finished by stitch night next week I know that for sure but at least I should be able to get a little bit more done.
Off to work on some documentation that I want to finish up and also to catch up on a few other things that need my attention.
