But I truly don’t want to waste any precious time lamenting how last year didn’t go as well as I wanted. That won’t help me accomplish my 2015 objectives. Of course I’ve spent some time analyzing why I think the year went so poorly. And as much as I want to “assign blame” to external sources of stress like getting laid off that one thing I know for sure is that I didn’t focus like I needed to. In the face of that it seems disingenuous to fault anyone or anything other than myself.
So anyway, back to the hat…
I wanted to try something new, as I’ve really only been crocheting my own pattern for a long time. I found this great pattern on Ravelry. It is available for free from Crochet Zombie. It took me a bit to figure out, but then it became a quick project. I used a US size H hook and some worsted weight yarn I had in my stash. I think it was Red Heart With Love. It will fit a little head, a young child. I think the next one I make will be with colors that are not so bright (bubble gum pink is not quite my favorite, but my 4 year old granddaughter loves it) and perhaps use a size I or J and see if I can get it to fit an adult head.
This one is going in the box for next year’s shelter donation. One down 49 more to go.
