The Crochet Crowd is having a Mad Hatter’s contest. The rules are that you have to follow the pattern for the hat but then you get to use your imagination to decorate it with an “Alice in Wonderland” theme. Here’s a sneak peek of the hat, now I have to start on the decorations. I wasn’t sure I was happy with the color but, the more I look at it, the better I like it. And I’m using up my stash yarn!  Ideas are percolating and I’m hoping my hands will hold out long enough to finish it before March 31st.

Update 28 March 2014:  My entry is a no-go, the hands are still not cooperating.  I’ll have to come up with something else to do with the hat.
