Thursday’s Thought: Hats

Thursday's Thought

I think hats are the most amazing invention in history of mankind (ok that’s a huge exaggeration but who cares). When I was a child I remember reading a book about a box full of magic hats. The children would try on the hats and become pirates, firemen and lots of exciting other things. I can’t remember the name of the book, but I can remember the illustrations very clearly. Ever since then I felt that if I could just find the right hat I would somehow fit in and belong.
Then I got older and read the book the Six Thinking Hats, again I felt that hats were magical only this time they are practical too.
I smile whenever I see hats in shops, I sometimes try them on. Lulu thinks it is hilarious. I even let her try them on. We must seem like a crazy duo. We probably are. I made her a couple of hats and she does enjoy wearing them. Every time I set out to make one I imagine myself making it with magic yarn so she could be something amazing, something only she can imagine. A hat that could take her to magical forests and enchanted worlds. A hat that could take her to the depths of the ocean and a hat that could take her to the moon. A hat for every interesting and colorful world there is in the universe, real or imagined. A hat that is hers. A hat that can show her where she really belongs and who she really is.
I don’t think I’ll ever stop making hats, trying to make the perfect one, now will I ever stop looking for my own perfect hat.
So if you see someone in a store trying on hats that makes them look terribly hilarious, smile and wish them luck that this is the perfect hat for them.

    First of all, you’re SOOOO cute.

    I have a big head, so it is very difficult for me to find a hat that fits, let alone looks good. However the only good hat I owned was a straw Fedora I got when I was in Greece, it was amazing and I looked good in it. Then it fell in the sea and got ruined, but I will always remember the Greek fedora.

    This post made me think of the mad hatter :)

      What a shame loosing a good hat :-(. I have always thought the Mad Hatter was one of the best characters in Alice in Wonderland.

          I loved hats as a kid and thought Blossom was awesome since she and Six had so many hats. Now I almost never wear one. Crochet are so sweet/cool though. :)
