Thank goodness Lent is over.

The final total for Lent:

22 hats.

And this:

My Lenten discipline was knitting for others. I would take a break from the hats with the log cabining.

Did I mention I was glad it was Easter? It was a good discipline and I'm glad I made myself stick it out, but I'm glad to be doing other things now.

Obviously next year you'll need to give up knitting for Lent.


Good output, though! Reminds me of Bartholomew Cubbins (remember that one?).

Easter blessings to you, and all joy of this Most High Day be yours....

The thing is, I was fascinated by the temptations that presented themselves to me even while I was doing something I very much enjoy.

It shouldn't matter who I was knitting for, right? And yet I was so very tempted to cast on for something for myself during the last couple of weeks of Lent.

I was fascinated to experience that spiritual struggle over a discipline that seemed so simple and easy at the beginning. I mean, it's not like I gave up chocolate ;).

I'm glad to see it was a challenge for you...you made it look so easy!

I'm with Jeanette. Chocolate? No way.
