Esmeralda

You’ll have to pardon me.  I’ve been a poor hostess.  I’ve neglected to make the proper introductions.  Miss Manners would not be pleased.

Knitters, I’d like you to meet Esmeralda.  She’s a lovely multi-part hat form.  Esmeralda, please meet the knitters.  They will all appreciate your unique talent for improving the look of jaunty hats of various shapes and sizes.

You guys chat amongst  yourselves, I’ll be over here working on something dashing for our new friend to wear.
