The Hats for Mindy project
Both Kirsten and Michael G have selected the same hat: Mindy is still mum on if it appeals to her (although she has declared her dislike for cats).
Not one but two patterns were created by knitteratti unwilling to spend $165 for a hat:
See Mindy's comment below; she is throwing herself under the bus of our collective taste. She declares the choice to be ours. (This is the other hat I am considering, brought to you the badasspunk knitter herself StaceyJoy of Brooklyn) MJ'll probably end up with both at some point. What she did demand was blue. Of which there are a billion and a half variations. Ideas? Analogies? Poetic nonsense of which to choose?
My grocery store the fantabulous Berkeley Bowl makes a guest appearance on my favorite NPR podcast ever: RadioLab from WNYC and the hosts get trapped in the massive apple aisle. Righteous!
