Today, I’m so thankful for the chance to talk to my kids about what color of hats they would like, and then surprise them with handmade hats at the end of the day! When I think about those frustrating moments learning to crochet a sloppy chain with my grandmother, or wavy-edged scarves thanks to dropped stitches and inconsistent tension in my grasp – it’s all worthwhile to have a skill that I can fall back on.
Granted, I can’t read a pattern to save my life and I’m indebted to my friend Erica for giving me a tutorial on this pattern just last night. Are they perfect? Far from it. But they’re made. They’re complete and they’re just right.
