Once again, sorry to readers who aren't yet signed up for Ravelry, but you here are the details about the hat.
Pattern: improvised freeform crochet hat
Yarn: various handspun art yarns by Insubordiknit
Needles & Hooks: multiple sizes, G to M
Started: December 14, 2007
Completed: January 11, 2008
If you don't remember my previous post, let me fill in the details. Jacey, the genius behind Insubordiknit.com (you know, the woman who makes the Vitreous Humor eyeball yarn!), put out a "call to knitters" for a project she's working on. The deal was, she'd provide the yarn, I'd provide the labor, and the project was to create a garment out of her art yarn to be worn by a member of an as-yet undisclosed band in their upcoming video. At the conclusion of Jacey's project, she'll send the items back to their creators to keep. So I get to play with some very cool yarn, get some name exposure (I hope), and end up with a faboo hat out of it! Win-win. This hat is what came out of that.
Like the arms that emerge like they're struggling to get out? Me too. ;)
