Project Cubbins: Hat 263 - Snow Pirate Pax Edition

Day 263 / Hat 263:  Black knit hat with red skull and crossbones on one side and red and black mohawk-like fringe. Handmade in Nepal, sold by Nirvanna Designs and sourced by the Bride in NYC. Exterior is 100% wool and interior polar fleece lining is 100% polyester.

I took this photo at about 10:30 a.m. EST today in the full-on midst of Winter Storm Pax. I like to think of it as my snow pirate look. With any luck, this pirate will be back in his regular Subtropical-Mediterranean climate zone shortly.

Oh, and just so you know (as I do now) we're just six short winter storms away from Winter Storm Vulcan!

Live long and prosper!

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!
