Nothing like a long weekend

To finish a project that I started over a month ago.

See, here's the thing with me and projects, I tend to take them on rather haphazardly and with such eclectic zeal that I don't really think about how long it might take for me to complete any one of them-much less all of them.

For instance, a good friend of mine just came back to work after being on maternity leave for four months. She had an adorable baby girl, who we all adore, and before the clock hit 5pm, I'd promised her a veritable truckload of fruit inspired hats for her little one.

Yeah, I could have stopped at the Strawberry Hat, or even the Pumpkin Hat--seeing as Halloween is right around the corner. But, No! I had to push it and throw in a Lemon Hat, too, since I knew I had some yellow yarn wasting away in my knitting basket.

I actually managed to get the Strawberry Hat done fairly quickly and the Pumpkin Hat was a snap. However, I lost steam when I hit the Lemon Hat and it's been staring at me from my basket for weeks now. So, long weekend in front of me, I decided I'd get them all done and wrapped up to take into the office next week. Did I do it?

Surprise! Surprise! They are all done and ready to go. But not only did I finish all three hats and tie them up with a ribbon and little handmade gift tag -- I even managed to take photos to post to the blog. What's more, I'm actually posting to my blog, which is an accomplishment in itself.

And look how cute...

  1. Oh holy hell, those are adorable! It almost wants to make me have kids so their Auntie Finny can spoil them.
    Really, so so sweet.


[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
