The First of Two Very Weird Hats
I decided to make a hat for my 2nd daughter's 'significant other' for Christmas.
This was actually a test.
My boyfriend thought that if hers actually put it on his head...
...he was a keeper.
Well, here you have it...
...photographic proof of his 'worthiness'! Har.
I started with a long pointy resist...
...then added black, grey and yellow fiber.
As it was drying, I 'telescoped' it down into pleats and a 'pointy finger'...
...like something magical in the Harry Potter books!
It had a more 'witch-like' brim when it was first finished...
...but I trimmed that off.
It still looks like something Dr. Seuss would draw...
...but for some reason, I just LOVE this hat!!
Wear it in good health, HB!!
