I finished the 8th and final hat for the Wood Badge dinner silent auction today. The eagle landed just before dessert. Whew!
Eight hats. Eight new designs.
The best news of all - I think the total from my 16 different items - $606 in scholarship donations for adult leaders to take so they can learn how to deliver the best Boy Scout program to youth. Value? Priceless.
What's a bobwhite? That's a good question. Most people don't know or have ever heard of one before. It's an American quail variety. He's kinda cute, too.
But I was definitely running out of time, so I got creative with BF's help. I knit a white hat. I was just going to embroider the three little letters b.o.b on it and call it a day. But in the end, I decided to come up with my own version of a bobwhite hat.
Just one more hat to go before the 1:00 p.m. lunch. Even I don't know if I can do it.
I spent several days working on the buffalo hat. I'm running out of time. I managed to come up with this hat... but I'm not sure it's quite there yet. So I'm dubbing this one the prototype. I might rework it for the 2.0 version.
