This is what I have been doing this week. Thinking up a new hat design, drawing the new hat design, shopping for the new hat, and then, of course, knitting the hat. I've been thinking for a few weeks that I need to come up with something new. Partly to refresh my inventory, and partly because I'm so completely bored with viking hats and cupcakes. I was at Venue this week dropping off some more hats and noticing that my display is looking sad and boring. I need something new. And then it hit me--I had been going to Venue via the U District and there are many Husky alums in the Ballard area. Would they buy a vintage football helmet for their little boy? (and Leah, I totally and completely forgot to pick up your little bag from Venue. I don't know what I was thinking! But I'll be going back soon...).
Does this even look like a vintage football helmet? Or is it a little too close to Elmer Fudd? I must say, I am quite proud of my W. I graphed it all by myself and I think it turned out very well. I am now about to start on a girl version. I'm not quite sure what it will be, but it will definitely have something foofy on top.
Feel free to weigh in on this one--I could use the feedback!
