When "Good" Ideas Go Bad

Confessions of an insomniac crocheter

Though my toddler has resumed a normal sleep schedule I have not.

For some reason willing my body to sleep before 4 a.m. has become a bit like trying to shove a squirrel into a beer bottle - if it actually happened it would be a miracle - and quite funny to boot.

So to bide my time during my unfortunate sleep situation I've been messing around with different hat ideas.

Unfortunatly, tonight I decided to take inspiration from The Real Housewives of Orange County. Why oh why did I end up watching an episode featuring cooking and big, floppy and loud hats? Not a good combination.

Because somewhere in the middle of watching catfights, sloppy drunk blondes and 40-year-old plus women pretending that fake boobs and botox was hotter than a redhead mistaking liquid heat for lube, I came up with this hideaous hat design.

Oh wait it gets better. Take a look at the side view.

All I can think of when I see this is the result of what would happen if Tim Gunn decided to make over the Swedish Chef.

Its actually not that bad! Minus the little "turd in the diaper look" in the back....but I have a big enough head that I'd probably fill it out enough that it would droop like that....I don't think you give yourself enough credit! :-)
