I've got Pac Man Fever!
Doesn't this remind you of the Pac Man ghosts after Pac Man eats one of the power pellet things? Caleb looks like a little blue ghost. Its actually Bonne Marie's Felted Bucket Hat (in all its unfelted glory). Its finally gotten cold here so I thought I'd whip one up. I have several "regular" knit hats - the kind with ribbing that fit snugly over my head, but the problem with those is that they squish my hair against the back of my neck. I don't like the way my hair feels squished against the back of my neck and I don't like the way my hair looks after I take off one of the "regular" hats. I thought the bucket hat might do the job - it shouldn't squish my hair as much and it shouldn't squish it against the back of my neck at all. I'll be felting it later today so we'll see if it works as well as I think it will. I also figure that I shouldn't have too much trouble keeping it on since Bonne Marie lives in Chicago and that's the Windy City after all. If it stays on her head there, it should stay on my head here. Just in case you care, I used one skein of Cascade 220 Heathers in color 2423, a lovely periwinkle. I did have a tiny bit of yarn left, but not very much - towards the end I was wondering if I would make it. Post felting picture tomorrow!
