My best friend...

Aside from Jesus, Chance and Allen, I have another best friend. She's a girl.  That's a big deal for me.  The aforementioned friends are all male.

But anyway, her name is Sarah.

She will probably kill me for posting a photo of her.

Goodbye blog-world.

But before she kills me, I'd like to mention that her birthday was Wednesday.

In honor of her big day, I took a quick break from my current knitting adventure to make her a slouch hat.  I received a slouch hat from Chance for Christmas, and Sarah mentioned that she'd like one as well.

So, considering I've learned to read one knitting pattern and complete one type of project, I felt like I was well-prepared to learn a completely new stitch and try a totally new pattern.


Three tries later, I completed Sarah's hat!

For anyone who knits, here's the pattern I followed (loosely).

Here's the finished project!

I must say, I'm pretty proud of myself!

Happy birthday, Sarah!
