I'm so excited! I finished it!
Last year I knitted a hat for my niece Violet and her brother Levi. It was so rewarding to see pictures of her wearing that hat! My sister said she wore that hat tons!

After you've spent so much time working on a piece (and invested the money into it! I was shocked to see how much yarn could cost for one item. I picked out yarns for a hat and the yarn totalled $35! For ONE hat! I found cheaper yarn for that hat!), you want to be sure it's used.
I saw the perfect hat I wanted to attempt for Violet's sister Lillie. Lillie is just one year old, so this one would be perfect! BUT it looked VERY hard to me! My knitting friend and teacher taught me how (she stayed with me a week this past Sept and spoke me through all the directions, confident that I could do it! Yikes,, I didn't think I could but tried it).
Yippee!! I finished it,, can you tell how happy I am?!?!
I so wanted to learn to knit and this helps me think I can do it!
My goal is to knit some socks; I think I'll attempt a pair after Christmas.
