In which I apparently cannot count, and am recklessly optimistic.

I decided to make a hat from the Schoppel Wolle Pur, and it’ll be epic. Smocking and everything. I didn’t know that was a thing, smocking. But it’s rather nice, and I’m sure that my long history of looking derpy in hats will not come back to bite me in the ass.

See, there are hat people, and then there’s me. I love hats. Love, love, love them. I love knit hats, felt hats, fancypants cloches and fedoras and akubras, and I look utterly, completely ridiculous in almost all of them. I’ve searched for tips and advice on how to rock a hat, and so far been advised “Just pick a hat that suits you, and wear that one!” It’s not a fetish, I don’t like them that much, and why on earth did I type that in my public blog? Oh well, committed now. Insert rant about commodity fetishism here, where I probably contradict myself enough times so as to completely confuse any reader, and let’s move on. I look derpy in most kinds of hat. Yes, that’s where I was, along with “Pick a hat you look good in and wear that!”

Uh. What about the glasses-wearing, and the high forehead, and the long hair that usually lives in a ponytail or plait? (Man, better type faster if I want to actually get this post written today!) Google hasn’t really helped, and friends just kinda shrug and go “It’s more about how you wear them?” Right. 

Slouchy hats apparently look good on me, as I’ve gotten tons of compliments on the blue slouchy hat in my last post. But I want to wear other types of hats too, and dammit, this one will be different. Pics, as usual, to follow. I’m such a tease.

    I miss wearing hats. I love knitting them, and like wearing them, though it is hard to find ones I look good in. Berets work, and hats with a front brim. But here in south Texas, well, I don’t tend to want anything on my head.

    I never thought I would find such an everyday topic so enhlratling!

  3. Well I guess I don’t have to spend the weekend figuring this one out!

  4. Oh man. I wish I would have known you were coming to my town! I would have given you a list of must dos. You hit some great stops, but if you find yourself here again send me an email so you can hit the locals fave hidden antiques, ie-not in greune.travelbunny.blogspot.com
