Project Cubbins: Hat Fifty-Seven

Day Fifty-Seven / Hat Fifty-Seven: Forest green baseball-style cap with embroidered yellow and white
rectangle logo that reads: "NAT GEO WILD," loaned to Project Cubbins by my favorite shepherdess (yes, it's on her business card) Natalie Redding of Temecula's Namaste Farms.

I think the brand-new, fresh out of the wrapper hat might actually be a hint at something else on the horizon, but so far Natalie has been mum on that. We first met several years ago after she invited me -- nay, harangued me -- to check out the wool and fiber from her champion Wensleydale, Teeswater and Gotland sheep, and champion Pygora and Angora goats (a link to that story below).

Whatever it is, the "yarn-trepreneur" will undoubtedly excel at it. I may have a head for hats, but Redding's got a way to spin the yarn business that's downright entrancing.

And that's not pulling wool over anyone's eyes either.
