Project Cubbins: Hat 461 -- Tibetian Burlap Patchwork Edition

Day 461 / Hat 461: Multicolored patchwork burlap hat with fringe brim and black lining. Interior tag reads: "50% hemp, 50% cotton, made in Nepal." Purchased by the Bride at the 19th Annual Southern Vermont Garlic & Herb Festival in Bennington earlier today.

She purchased it -- and a couple of other handicrafts -- from a vendor at the festival called Vision of Tibet. Although there's apparently a requirement that all vendors be somehow garlic-related we spotted nary a bulb or clove in evidence during the Bride's several visits.

But we're willing Tibet they've figured out some loophole. 

Mind the shoulder trout, that's Gilly.

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
