My Creative Sister

Just this last year my sister JE found out I am not creative. Yes I knit, crochet and do all kinds of crafty things, but I am not one who comes up with most of the ideas. Sometimes I will modify a pattern or come up with an idea and make up a pattern but overall, no. I do not want the responsibility in a group of being in charge or coming up with ideas. Just tell me what you want me to do and I will do it with gusto and hopefully close to perfection. Last year JE wanted some ideas on how to get cool pix with all her hats. Thinking I was creative and crafty she asked me what to do. Duh, I don't know. She became really shocked that I had no ideas, not a one, nada. Here is what she came up with, pretty cool.

Some years she has knit over 365 hats. In the last 8 years she has knit over 2,000 hats for our hat project.

While she was here this last weekend she wanted to take pix of my hats that are finished so far. Of course I had no ideas, did not want to take them outside and could not think of anything that was "cool". So here is what she got. Yeah, great picture.

Point being I have knit 135 hats so far for the Knit-A-Cap project. Maybe it is ok for me not to be creative.
