I told her she can't wear them point-forward, as she's not a Captain, so she's wearing them turned sideways. Love the concentration in the last shot!
The red (Paton's yarn, Cognac Heather) one is mine. The other is intended for Iron John Bonney, and will be decorated with Tarheels insignia and some other junk in light blue and white. The yarn was Cascade 220 in a very dark grey, which took two more cycles of hot wash than did the Patons's. But both hats are drying now, very firmly felted! Hip, hip, HOORAH!
