Again With the Hats

Ashton's Hat

One more down!

The thing with all of these hats lately, is that the moment that I start a project and get about five rows into it, I get a whole new idea for another person. And if you creative types are anything like me then you know the sense of urgency that comes with that new idea. It feels as though YOU MUST DO IT NOW. In order to keep Rick from going batty from all of my projects and stray yarn laying around, I have promised myself to always finish something through to completion before I am even allowed to step foot into a yarn or fabric store. This works well for the both of us. It forces me to not get flakey and give up when I'm only half finished to completely ditch it for something new.

This method had been pretty beneficial for the recipients as well, as a few more heads have been covered this winter. As the colder months are starting to dwindle away, ideas are still streaming forth and requests are adding up. Summer may become my catch up season...that or I may have to start charging!

Why it's an Abominable Snowman of course! Doesn't every office have one?

We have the Rudolph figurine and it was the only thing big enough to hold up the hat.

Well of course it is! How silly of me. I can't believe I didn't see that since it is my favorite Christmas show! Great job on the hat(s) too by the way! Love, Jo
