Hat details, bit o' nerdery

Laurie asks:
What hat is that?
It's from Anna Zilboorg's "45 Fine and Fanciful Hats to Knit." It's sort of a pentagon-topped beret. I'm fascinated by that book and think maybe hats and mittens are the way for me to overcome some of my Fair Isle issues.

(The lizard, btw, is a skink. Of the order "squamata," which, when I was 6, I thought was the coolest word ever. More than 20 years later, I used that word in a limerick I wrote for a newspaper story on the DuPage River cleanup day.)

Ok. Is anyone else curious or is it just me? I'm dying to see the limerick! :)

One week to "heaven" in MD. Weeee!!

Oh, it's not just you. :)

So isn't it funny how sometimes we need to see something out of context to appreciate it. Because I'm sure I've seen that pattern and dismissed it as stupid. Or maybe it's that your friend added her coolness to it. Thanks for the info.
