I began with the Kaul Toque, which started out looking like this:
But by the end of the evening (this is why I love hats) looked like this:
And two days later, looked like this:
Then, this friend of mine who shall remain nameless but whose initials are Joe asked me to make him a Mohawk hat. Really, he did. I made him promise never to tell anyone I had made it for him...and then I made it for him. I cobbled together bits and pieces from a couple of different hats I'd made in the past, and came up with the Joehawk.
I hate to admit it, but... I kind of love it.

|that's not Joe, that's me.|
But two hats, even when one is fully lined and features a felted hairpiece, just aren't enough, so I went ahead (hah!) and made another. This is Åsa Tricosa's Callisto Hat design, again in my beloved Wollmeise DK. Yeah, it looks kinda stupid on me, so I gave it away. But it's a fabulous hat.
See how I got brave and started modeling my own hats? Just wanted you to notice. Thanks.
