A hat that makes me happy
After weeks of not knitting one stitch, I suddenly got an itch to pick up my knitting last Monday. So I dug out the hat I started almost two months ago. I worked on it during the day and I had a nice window of uninterrupted knitting time at night when some mysterious orange lights in the distance inspired my husband to listen to Jeff Wayne's War of the World. Yes, we're nerds like that ;-)
But it was nice. Just half an hour on Tuesday to finish it and then I was done.
It's just a simple hat, actually, and it doesn't even really fit me (it's kind of big), but it makes me so happy.
When life is hard and stressful, knitting helps me to relax, but when I slip into a real depression (you know, the chemical imbalance in your head), I usually stop knitting. Being back at it definitely is a sign that I'm getting better.
And that's why I love this simple, oversized hat.
