I finished the hat and shipped it out , keeping my fingers crossed and trying my best to block out my inner saboteur until I heard her reaction. It was above and beyond what I would have ever expected. I read Melissa’s words, hearing her delight and enthusiasm with every exclamation mark!
I am ecstatic about how it turned out:
