O.K. I'm not *just* blowing my own whistle here......only slightly.
We just got back from the campus to see our daughter in a play -- SUCH a funny play and SUCH a great, meaty role, and SO well acted by her. That was just a gratuitous bit of bragging. Hey, I'm entitled -- this is my dime!! ;-)
BUT here's where you come in:
Every girl on campus (well, a LOT, anyway) wants one. People were telling me (girls and boys alike) that I should knit them and Abbie should sell them for tuition money. We decided that, given the mindset of kids that age and of that, shall we say, socioeconomic group? (Yes, we shall.) -- that I should put a pricetag of $125 on them, since we all know how much more desirable things are the more expensive they are, right? But seriously, people have been telling her how much they want that hat, she's been telling them her mom made it, I was approached by several while at the play. Nuff said.
If you make one, though, don't forget to line it, as I did here, because the sequins-on-a-string are picky on the inside of the hat. I used microfleece.
