I so love my newest hat. I love it so much I don't even mind the obvious jokes about it (and if you don't know what I'm talking about, you have a very sparkly, clean mind!) So without further ado.... I present to you....
The Great Gonzo!
I was really worried about the nose... making sure it curved and all, but it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I also was concerned about the eyelids, but I think they turned out pretty well, too.
I left it on the lamp like that and Bill was startled by him when he walked in there in the dark. That just makes the hat all the more awesome! He wouldn't look at me this morning when I had it on. =)
I took it to work and even had someone request that I make them one! Woo hoo!
The girls aren't crazy about it. Zoe said, "I like it a little bit, but not a lot."
I have one more blue-themed hat before November ends. I also have to finish up my three turkey hats before Thursday. Make another Gonzo. And I got the stuff to get started on my brother-in-law's Christmas present (a blue and orange mohawk hat with a twist...). I've had two really fun ideas for hats the past two days. I need to write this stuff down so I don't forget. I love it when the creativity is flowing!
I have been feeling a little under the weather this week, and the cold finally hit full-force last night. Blah. I hate being sick. I need to get it to run its course quickly so I can be well by Thanksgiving.
If I don't make it back here before then, I hope you all have a wonderful Turkey Day! I am oh, so grateful for each and every one of you that read this, whether or not you comment!
