I got a wild idea about the middle of November to make everyone crochet beanies for Christmas. I had just had surgery in October and was home recovering thinking I had plenty of time.
I compiled my list of hats I needed to make. There were over 50 names on that list and with a schedule of making two a day and sometimes three I could technically make a Christmas deadline. Two hats a day was an impossible task for me with a full-time job and also just how slow I am apparently at making hats. Really thought I could whip those up faster.
So here I sit the first week of February and still not done with these hats. At this point these hats are giant leap towards crochet hats for Christmas 2017 as winter will soon be over if not already in our part of the country.
My grandmother always crocheted Christmas gifts throughout the year. Every November when I decide to make gifts then spend every free moment crocheting, I see her wisdom in her planning and vow to try it. This year I will be doing this and thanks to starting in November (and not making a Christmas deadline) I have a good amount done for Christmas 2017.
