Throughout my life I have found that most things happen for a reason. Sometimes, we have to search really hard for a reason. Sometimes, we don’t. Here’s a no-brainer. WordPress a feature that I quite enjoy called “tag surfer.” You can type in tag words and WordPress will go out to cyberspace to fetch any blog entry on WordPress that features a tag that you have shown an interest in. Three days ago I happened upon ChocolateSheep. Here’s her blog link http://chocolatesheep.wordpress.com/ . This happens to be one I do not remember ever coming across before. I read her post (amazing as it was one without pics and I usually skip those) about her effort to get knitted hats for her son’s class as one fo the boys in the class has a brain tumor and will be undergoing chemo soon. All of the classmates have decided to shave their heads in a show of solidarity with this young man. She put a call out for hats. How could I NOT knit these boys a hat???? I had to. My accidental stumble of her blog lead me to knit a hat for a child I will never know who is standing by his friend. Things do happen for a reason.
The hat is finished. I will photograph it in the morning after I steam the raglan decreases (Turn A Square Hat Pattern by Jared Flood) and weave in eleven million ends since I had to get cute and jazz it up a bit.
