The Final Countdown

Believe it or not, I have only five hats left-- I finished number 47 last night! Today, I'm going to do something a little bit shocking-- brace yourselves-- I'm going to start my 52nd hat. I've had the yarn for ages, and I want to savor the experience of knitting with it:

Springtide cashmere-- so good it's kind of naughty...

I also want to end up with a hat that I will actually wear, rather than one that I just pet occasionally*, so I'm giving myself plenty of time to get it right.

There have been many times in the past couple of months that I've wished this project was over already-- but now that November is here, I want to enjoy it as much as possible and give these last five hats all the attention they deserve. Let the games begin!

*Not that there's anything wrong with petting cashmere...


  1. Just found your blog today and love it! I wanna join in the 52 days, 52 hats bandwagon!!

  2. I look forward to seeing your last hat, and I think it is wonderful that you are making #52 for yourself out of cashmere. I hope you keep blogging when your project is done!
