Rather cunning, dont'cha think?
Ignore the fat guy wearing it. He's, um.........overpaid.
I originally asked my mother to make this for me, since that would be perfect, plus she actually WORKS for the Post Office, so that's just cool all around (for those who don't know, Jayne Cobb received this hat in a package at the PO, from his mother). But her neighbor is better at knitting, so she asked her (to my horror- I wouldn't have asked, and she didn't know details).
It's a little heavy in the tie area, but that's fixable. The earflap shape is off, slightly, but I can live with it. Colors look dead on to me. Bathroom fluorescent light is washing it out.
A slightly more attractive person:
If anyone is interested in a hat like this to keep them warm, she really needs the money (though she wouldn't take any for mine). She and her husband have big time bill problems. LMK. I'll even ask her to fix the earflap shape, and go easy on the ear-ties.
I'm wearing it right now. I think it's cool as hell. Well, warm, actually. You know what I mean.
