the what and the why
Dec 29, 2011
A friend and I went to Denny's one day, and she taught me the basics of knitting - cast on, knit and purl. She handed me some yarn and needles, and I got busy ... and never looked back!
A few years ago, I decided to try to live a more remarkable life and set a goal to knit One Hundred Hats for charity in a years' time. I met that goal, and continued knitting for charity like mad. But I missed the challenge ... and I missed the hats!
So I'm beginning again, on January 1, 2012. This time I'm setting the goal a bit higher, and making the reach a bit broader:
I aim to knit and give away 10,000 hats in my lifetime for friends, family, and charity.
I have blogged about many other things, and in many other spaces. And for many different reasons. This time it's for me - a way to honor my goal, a way to track my progress, and a way to document a life lived with hats always on the needles,
