I wanted to acknowledge that I have been a bad, bad blogger. Work and life have gotten in the way of documenting my progress here (though I have been keeping up on Instagram). C'est la vie.
For most of my crafting life, I've been a a selfish crafter. Not everyone I know is craft-worthy! So part of this year's list is to make stuff for other people. I've realized I enjoy the process almost as much as the finished object (occasionally more!), so this should be an interesting experiment for myself.
Project 03/52 is the simple snug hat by Sarah Hatton. It took very little time to make - I want to say an hour, but I can't remember now! For sure I started and finished the same day. Very straight-forward knit (would be great for a beginner who wanted to learn decreases) and only takes one skein of Rowan Big Wool (or comparable chunky yarn). It's knit flat and then a seam is sewn up the back. I like that construction, but if you don't, you should easily be able to convert to knitting it in the round. I'm not a huge fan of pink, but know someone who is and thought she would enjoy it. I made it in January and still haven't had a chance to give it to her, but I'll report back after I do.
