While I was on my making things for me kick, I finally squared away an essential piece of my winter wardrobe. I have what can charitably be called quite a big head. I also have wavy hair that can tend towards huge and frizzy. Finally, I am always freezing. This means that a winter hat is necessary, but always risks making me look terrible and ruining my hair. This winter, though, I solved that problem at last with my new Helmet Hat.
When I had basically given up, someone at one of the booths suggested this 130-year-old Victorian picture button. My friend commented that it reminded her of the mockingjay from The Hunger Games. I agree and it makes me like it even more. I think it finishes the hat off perfectly, and I'm really happy to have warm ears this winter!
