Bright Connections for their trip to the orphanage in Kiev. I had ten finished going into the weekend and then I hit the wall. Midway through #11 I became totally sick of hats.
Thankfully the Oscars were last night and sitting on my couch for three hours didn't seem like a waste of time at all if I was making my twelfth hat in the process. So about the time my beloved Jean Dujardin was winning his Best Actor Oscar, I was doing the last rows of decrease on the cap. And right after The Artist won for Best Picture, I wove in the last bits of yarn. Yes, I was manic about wanting The Artist to win and I don't care what my sister says, Jean deserved the Oscar over Clooney (but maybe just by that much). I was a little bummed Viola Davis didn't win, but otherwise I considered it a successful night.
And I won my award by finishing this project and not having to make another damned hat for the next six months. Freedom!
