It also turns out that I'm a lot closer to finishing the hat than I'd realized. I'd never even read the pattern thoroughly enough to know how many pattern repeats I was supposed to do. For the purpose of writing this blog post, I took a closer look at the pattern & realized I only have one more four-row repeat before beginning the crown decreases. Cool! I just may get this baby finished today.
And you'd think.... four more rows then begin the decreases... simple! I should have this bad boy done within the hour. But I'm not holding my breath. Today's plan was to be super productive and I'm seriously failing the plan. It's currently 2:23 in the afternoon & I've scratched one thing off my to-do list. One thing. One simple thing. Good grief!
Although I know it's not the real reason, at least not totally, I'm blaming my productivity fail on my daughter. She got her driver's license recently & today is her first time driving with a friend in the car. And they are going places she's never been before & she's even more geographically challenged than I am, if that is even possible. I sort of can't breathe and I'm terrified I'll never see her or my car ever again. Oh, and did I mention it's getting ready to storm?
Yes, I am totally aware that I'm a psycho helicopter mom. But she's my baby. And I'd really like to have my car back.
