I wear 3 hats at home. Mama, knitter, and butt kicker. I decided to write a knitting pattern collection to make it easy on my friends and family to see where I’m at each day.

I wear the Mama hat when I’m fulfilling family obligations like:

  1. Showing my husband where to find the milk in the fridge.
  2. Yelling for the 100th time at my sweet sprog to please stop stomping the cheerios into the grain of the laminate floor.
  3. Sweeping up the 2 lbs of dog hair that collected overnight.

I wear the Knitter hat when:

  1. I’m casting on for my 27th project on the needles.
  2. I’m buying more yarn (or fiber). Again.
  3. Stealthily sneaking more rubbermaid
    containers into the house for yarn
    storage.

I wear the Butt Kicker hat:
Any remaining time in my busy schedule.

Wondering which hat you’ll wear when? It’s up to you.
