Project Cubbins: Hat 243 - Stickin' with the Stockinette Cap Edition

Day 243 / Hat 243: Cap crafted from white stockinette knit tube dressing.  Crafted for the Project by a nurse named Andrea (note,the jaunty topknot!). Apparently this stuff is like the duct tape of the hospital - caps like this are made for patients in the operating room, lengths of it are used under sequential leggings on legs and under blood pressure cuffs on arms and the like.

The idea for this hat's inclusion in the Project came from my sister-in-law (the brother's wife not the wife's sister) which means she deserves today's tip of the hat.

Oh, and Project sticklers need not worry about the timing of today's hat - rest assured that it is technically past the midnight hour here on the East Coast. West Coasters, you can simply think of this as a hat from the future -- but just for a few hours.

PC 242: Sombrero for Ants
PC 241: Domo on my Dome
PC 240: Batten Kill Brain

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!
