The Slubby Hat has found its head, and is liked. My dad had been going bareheaded, as all of his own hats are fishing hats, which just don’t accommodate the stitches, and as my little sister had finally managed to wrestle her hats away from him, so I’m told that he’s quite pleased with this one. He’d been known, previously, to sleep in my sister’s hats, to keep his head warm, so this is a suitable alternative.
Mind you, I don’t know what hats my sister had which were so objectionable … but I’m gathering that they didn’t fit the masculine ideal that she and my mom have of him, and they were ashamed to be seen in public with him wearing them. Who knows?
