Project Cubbins: Hat 339 - Hello Knitty Cap Edition

Day 339 / Hat 339: Pink knit cap with heart-shaped Hello Kitty applique on front. (Kitty is sporting a crown, by the way.) Additional details include multicolored embroidered stars and hearts, dark pink contrast edge and the words "Hello Kitty" embroidered in white.

There are two interior tags. The bottom one reads: "100% acrylic, exclusive of decoration, made in China," the top one reads "Hello Kitty by Sanrio, used under license, manufactured by Berkshire Fashions Inc." on the back and "Princess Hello Kitty, only at Macy's" on the front The princess part explains the crown and the overall air of feline royalty this cap exudes.

Graciously loaned to the Project by Marilyn and plucked almost purely at random from the MRBOH.

FYI, the green stuffed Grinch (another Seussian flourish) looming over the top of the cap is not part of it - nor is the red shredded floral thingy between said Grinch and the top of the hat. Their appearance is totally random. Sharp-eyed readers might be able to spot all kinds of other random things on the shelf behind me that seem like they should be INSIDE my head rather than outside.

What can you spy with your little eye?

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
