L: "You've probably forgotten what I asked you to do for me."
me: "er, um....refresh my memory and I will let you know if I forgot or if I haven't gotten around to doing it just yet"
L: "I had asked you to make one for T."
me: "oh yes! I do remember that now...I will get to it soon, I promise."
L: "I need it before his birthday, or at the latest, by Dec. 24, 2009."
me: "OK..gee, I'm sorry I haven't done it yet...I've been really swamped."
L: "remember that washcloth you made for me? well, I've used it so much that it is coming apart...could you fix it?"
me: "Yikes, I must have made that at least 5 years ago...you still have it? Throw it out, I'll make you another one."
I got busy on the earflap hat. I reached for my old stand-by pattern for the red baron hat, don't know how many of these I have made over the years...but it is a quick and fun pattern that you can add whatever mods you want.
The hat was finished over the weekend. Now to pack it up and send it off with a few washcloths...I'm sure T will get some use out of the hat right away...after all...winter isn't over just yet...
