The hat is done…washed, blocked, and otherwise prepped. It is totally and completely adorable. That is, it is totally and completely adorable when I have it on my head. It looks rather goofy and lumpy when on Alphonse the handy hat form. For you see, Alphonse is about the size of a normal person’s head. My giant dome is a good 2 and a half inches bigger (blame the hair…or maybe I drank too much milk as a kid). All of which means that a hat that fits me doesn’t quite fit Alphonse.
Some time I’ll try and get a pic of it on me, but for now we’ll have to make do with Alphonse’s limited services. Here it is from the front, side, and back. The wee curl on the brim sits just above my eye, and the back has just the right amount of slouch. Totally fetching…when on the right size of head.
