Project Cubbins: Hat 216 - That Girl Got Devil Horns Edition

Me with Hat 216 (left), the Bride with same (center) and 'Thleen (right) at Bromley earlier the same day.

Day 216 / Hat 216: White knit wool hat with red intarsia devil horn design. Additional details include white wool pompom and polyester fleece lining. Interior tag reads: "Kate Spade New York, hats off."

This hat was a gift from me to the Bride last Christmas and is symbolic of her sometimes devilish nature. It wouldn't really be fair not to show it on its rightful head, so I'm also including a photo of it in its natural habitat taken earlier today at Bromley Mountain --during our first schuss of the season.

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 is celebrating 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
Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
