Merry Hat-mas!

I made Dave this hat for Christmas, and it's been killing me that I haven't been able to post a picture of it for you all to see. The pin looks like a little wreath in this pic, but it isn't. It's a gold pin with a red stone in the middle, very classy, and not wreath-y at all in real life.

It's based off this picture from the 1500s.

I used some 1/4 inch thick Italian wool cloth I got at the Olympia Artists Sale last summer. The results are terrifically pleasing to me! Dave says it's really warm. Too bad the average daytime temperature here has been like 45 degrees lately. I think both Dave and I would like a drop into the 20s (at least) so we can show off our wool finery in comfort.
