A fantastically fun time knitting in public.

I just got back from a little vacation. During the weekend, there was a rubber ducky race. Along with the race was the 1st annual Hat competition.

I won in the "most outrageous hat" category.

What a blast I had, too! Many people got a huge kick out of my hat. Lots of photos were taken. I thought I'd better put it on a website that might just appreciate a good chuckle.
Happy knitting.

I'd always heard that Carman Miranda had a twin brother that was raised "out of the spotlight" so to speak. I think you've been found out LOL!

That hat is a sight to behold. Thanks for sharing it with us. It deserved that prize for certain. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Too funny!!!!! Uncontrollable outburst at work today!!!! Reminds me of a friend who went to a Kentucky derby party wearing a Kentucky fried chicken bucket with a My Little Pony strapped on top of it. Yours of course takes the prize!!! Great job.

Until we knit again...David
