I Have a Hat Making Problem

As I sit at home alone on the weekends after my kids go to bed I get that anxious feeling where I want to do something. At first, I would go and get a snack in hopes that I would feel less anxious, but it did not seem to help. So, instead, I pulled out my old crochet stuff and just started making hats.... lots and lots of hats. I may have a hat making problem.

I find that crocheting soothes me. It makes me feel less anxious and gives me purpose. But why hats you ask? Because hats are faster than an afghan and I've discovered that no one wants an afghan... myself included. So hats it was! And then I had more baby hats than I knew what to do with. I don't know enough babies to give these hats to.

So, I brought my hats to work, set them on my desk and tried to sell them. And it worked! Okay, so I've only sold $65 worth of hats, but that is better than no hats at all! Finally, something to do with my excess of hats.

Here are some of the hats I have been making. I took these photos with my phone, so excuse the poor quality.

I've made more hats than this, but I neglected to take pictures of all of them before I sold them. And if you are interested, that little penguin still hasn't sold yet ($15). But, even if I don't sell all my hats, I will just hold on to them and give them out at every baby shower that I go to. Yep, I have a hat making problem.

You go girl! I love the hats. Crocheting calms me too. I guess we just have to keep our hands busy. You are a much better crocheter than I am and more creative. I'm proud of you.
