Charity Hats Made In 2010

Yeah, I was THAT kid.

You know the one.  Weird shirts.  Boy's shoes.  Riding a bike without a left pedal.   The one who could be counted on to be the only one being yelled by the teacher for disrupting the class.  I was probably walking backwards in line or something.  

I gloss over all that strange, annoying behavior by telling myself I was a rebel.  Not following directions was my 8- year -old way of lashing out at the establishment.  Yeah, right.  

Crochet lets you be a rebel but over the last 30 years I've learned that there is a time and place to rebel.  And there's a time to follow the directions.  This is one of those times. 

I had attempted this sweater before, not minding the warning not to use acrylic.  Not paying as close attention to the pattern as I should have...and as expected it was a big. giant. disaster. 

So, I had enough of a really great yarn to try it again.  I also had something to prove.
