Knitted Long Tailed Hat

It's a rainy day and what better way to spend it than knitting a new hat. It has a liripipe on it and I started it on the train last week.It's multicolored, but mostly green and earth tones. I'm making it on double pointed needles. My hands were aching so I only working on it about an hour.

Pillbox Butterfly Hat

I made this pillbox hat a few years ago, and mostly it's sat in a box at the top of my hall closet. But I was making some burlesque costumes for photo shoots and realized my hat was perfect for the one I wore on Halloween. I made it from scratch while I was on a trip. I made the frame out of buckram.

The Paris pin I found recently in a box of jewelry I bought in the '80's. It was the perfect touch I think.
