The first Monday of the year...somehow not inspired. I'm really hoping that it proves me wrong. I just saw the link for day one of the TIAS, so at least I know I'll get that tatted up after the morning routine.
The weekend was all about hats, well mostly anyway. After I wrote that I was in search of a hat pattern, the lovely Fox commented with a pattern link. It was perfect, the right shape and worked up the way I prefer, from the crown down all in a round with no seaming. After schooling was wrapped I went to work and had one done by lunch time. The oldest child made her desire for one known immediately and I started to work on hers with the rest of the yarn in the skein.
This was followed by my Mother-in-law, who was taking the kids out with their cousins, to request one as well as one of the nieces. When they returned back from their adventuring I was done with the second hat and was handed red and turquoise yarn for two more. We had a lovely birthday dinner to attend that evening and some adventuring on Saturday, also with some wonderful folks, but most of Saturday's sitting time was making up those two other hats. I handed them off Sunday morning at the in-laws house and was asked to make two more using up the rest of the yarn for a friend of hers that had cancer.
