This hat was for a Nerdopolis entry- the challenge being myth or folk tale. It was inspired by Fionn MacCool and the Salmon of Wisdom. Or rather by my friend's son's Irish Myths and Legends book, and my love of teasing my friends about their "Irishness". I did the crochet version, because currently the knit version would take more than a month to complete. (Nerdopolis rules - you can enter something you started before the month started, but have to enter it during the appropriate month, and I didn't know about this legend until mid-July)
I made it to fit a child's head, I'm planning on giving it to Christopher, and it was just a tad too small to fit on my glass head. So it's kind of weird shaped as I stuck it on a wax lumiere (candle inside wasn't lit) to take the pictures. Now I need to find a book about fish to give him with this.
