60% and Then Some

When I started my kippah project I figured that it would be good blog fodder when my brain was fried or empty. Although it wasn't the reason for doing the project it sure did seem like a great by-product. Little did I know how productive my needles would be. It turns out that even the milestones in this little project have been hard to squeeze in.

Number 40 is one such milestone. That was the halfway point in this project and it would've been really cool to mark it with an obnoxious, self-congratulatory post that included great photos of a huge pile of completed kippot. Can't you picture it?

Well... I passed the halfway point September 28th and I was too busy to mark the occasion. Besides, most of the kippot are still in NY with my mom having their labels sewn in so I can't show the mountain of kippot. So much for the grand show.

The kippah seen in this post is number 50. I decided that the sister of the Bat Mitzvah girl needed something special too so I let her choose some glass beads to spice up her kippah. I love the result and so does she. Yay!

I love the kippah. Beautiful. Do you have a favorite? I'd like to make one for my boy.

Well, your SIL, Misun, has gotten into the act. She can't watch someone else having all the fun, so she has sewn a few labels*^^*
