Project Cubbins: Hat 257: Pink Nepalese Mohawk Edition

Pink knit hat with fringe Mohawk detail interior tag reads: "Nirvanna Designs, handmade in Nepal, 80% wool, 20% polyester."

This is another one of the Bride's impulse hat purchases this week. She bought this pink one for herself and a similar (but oh so boyish) one for me at the same pop-up hat store earlier this week.

"Pink Nepalese Mohawk" sound like it should be the name of a weird bar shot or a wrestling move.

But no, it's just a hat. But if anyone has weird bar shot ideas, I'm all wool-covered ears.

Nirvanna Designs' pop-up shop, for those of you might find yourselves in NYC, will be at 736 Broadway Street through February 28, 2014.

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!
