Homespun Hat

This isn't where I intended to start the post, but blogger decided for me. I don't have the energy to try to figure out why, so I'll just type here.

I completed another hat for me. It's done in Lion Brand Homespun with a P hook. Since the yarn is doubled, it's very fast to make. Now I need to make a scarf to go with it. According to the weather reports, I'll probably need it this week. Winter has finally come to Oklahoma.

I'm going to get out my fat jeans and iron them for next week. (My fat jeans are the ones big enough to comfortably wear insulated underwear with. ) Thank goodness I'm allowed to dress very casual at work. Otherwise, I would have frozen to death weeks ago.

I haven't had a cigarette in 11 weeks and 5 days. (I can't seem to quit marking off the days and weeks like that. For some reason I feel the need to keep track of how long it's been since I last smoked.) I'm not taking the Chantix anymore either. The insurance company never approved the prescription, and I ended up paying for the first four weeks. I don't think I really needed it in the first place, but I was so afraid that I would smoke again. The Chantix was a kind of talisman to help me not smoke. I've found that sugarless candy does the same thing, and it's a whole lot cheaper.

I am thrilled with the quitting smoking, honestly I am!

I like the hat a lot too.

(Can you tell I had one drink too many at a surprise birthday party for someone this afternoon-I can barely type this reply???)

I like both the hats, too! Gotta love quick crochet projects that use a P hook. And good for you to hang in and quit smoking. I'm really proud of you!
