A Quest Update

I got an e-mail today from a lovely fellow quest person, which is when I realized it's been FOREVER since I talked about my quest to make 10,000 hats for 10,000 people. So silly - the whole reason I started this space was to help track that goal!

The hat above, an acrylic Sandoval Hat (my own free pattern), is hat 908 in that quest. I'm learning that life with a toddler and pre-schooler means far less knitting time than I used to have. And that's totally okay because these years are so fleeting! We spend our days at the park, at the play gym, searching for buried treasure (thanks to mama's hand-made map), and doing so many fun things that knitting is more often than not the farthest thing from my mind.

But still, in the evenings, or in the car, or in stolen moments, I knit a row or two. I make hats that will be sent around the world and given to folks in my own neighborhood, and I remember that this is such the perfect quest for me, using sticks and string to make a tangible sign of love.

I may post here less often, and I may knit slower than I used to. It's only temporary, as so much in life is. And I wouldn't have it any other way!
