i had knit so many baby aviatrix hats that i decided it was time to size it up and knit one for myself.
these photos are actually 1,000 times more flattering than reality. i knit the hat quickly while watching a very painful and awkward film called 'humble pie' (pretty fitting for this hat), and when i finished it i put it on right away, without even looking in the mirror, and said to nabil "look!"
he laughed. and that was all the mirror i needed. then i laughed.
and then the other day my sister and nieces were here, and i put on the hat again. my sister walked into the living room and said 'aw.' and then she laughed. she said she liked how it looks like a vintage football helmet. and then oldest niece said 'take that silly hat off.' and she laughed.
sadly, i no longer have a baby head.
