One of the greater things that's happened in the last year is the love my extended family has for hand knits. Two years ago they fake smiled as they opened handmade presents from me; this past Christmas the folks who didn't receive them were disappointed!
I don't know if that's a testament to my perseverance and how much I've worn them down, if it means my knitting has gotten better, or if I simply figured out how to knit things they'll actually want.
No matter, because this is the SECOND hat my sister-in-law has asked for in as many months! And if you were to look in my knitting basket you'd see a light blue hat nearing completion for her friend, whom I met just a few weeks ago and who commented on how much she liked the hats I made.
Like I said the other day about Jona's Jane Hat, I need to add a few inches to these Jane hats before I decrease. I'm getting a bit jumpy to have them off the needles, and they're ending up less and less slouchy with each hat.
I'm making 10,000 hats for 10,000 people. This is hat 029.
