Project Cubbins: Hat 387 - Double Melon Love Knit Beanie Edition
Day 387 / Hat 387: Navy marled rib knit beanie with leather applique patch on front that reads: "Love Your Melon." Snipe-snapped from a co-worker's desk while the cube farm was empty this a.m. Interior tag reads: "Made in USA, Columbia Knit, 100% cotton, machine wash warm, [n]o chlorine bleach, remove promptly, tumble dry low, RN#24265."
This is the second hat from the Love Your Melon collection I've featured (the first was PC 382) and I'm in such a mad scramble to hit 500 I'd probably have included even if it weren't such an a good cause -- and it is a good cause. The LYMF donates a hat to a cancer-stricken child for every hat purchased.
The beanies cost $30 (you can shop for 'em here) which means two hats to warm two heads -- and warm a whole lot of hearts.
PC 287: Bonita Springs
PC 187: Convertible Balaclava
A Year Ago Today in Project Cubbins
Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?
A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which celebrated the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1.
