So I admit it: I had a little relationship with baby hats during the school year.
Maybe it was a little more than a little relationship – it was a full out affair. I went nuts – a baby hat or two a week, the same pattern (mostly), with the little things collecting in a bag in my dorm room until I had the motivation to part with them.
I think the part I loved about them was that they were so fast: I could be studying for a math exam and then bam a baby hat was done. I convinced myself that I was doing a good thing, since all the baby hats were going to a birthing center that asked a club I’m in for donations, and, after all, it was better than knitting a garter stitch scarf (anything but the scarf, please!).
So, on to a partial parade of hats:
Have you ever “binged” on a knitting item? Why do you think knitting certain things can seem so addictive?
