Ode to Seuss Hat 2008
I love using all kinds of materials and nothing is sacred. I found a snootful of that expensive weird yarn at the Dollar Tree and thought
“I must do something with this!”
I hemmmed and hawwed til I thought, and thought, and then I was struck by the realization: I need a cool hat. Or something like that. Anyways, I couldn’t knit at the time and well, hot glue is a mother, so I found some free wire mesh and started fashioning a cap of sorts. Then some horns that twisted and then I started wrapping and tying and attaching the yarn to the headdress. It became very Dr. Seussy but I love the final look and since it only weighs like, 20 pounds, it’s definitely perfect for daily wear.
