That is such a thoughtful and awesome idea! The hat looks great. And yarn that glows? How cool is that!

lovely hat and lovely gesture! abonus with a wool hat is its low flammability! ( naturally flame retardant and it will burn if exposed to flame but burns slowly,when the flame is removed, the fabric usually quits burning )

i think you're right. i looked at the lemonade yesterday and there was definitely more yellow than neon in it.

Actually the color isn't too far off. But the yarn is 100% acrylic, acrylic melts when near heat and that wouldn't be a good thing. Even though as EMT's we are Fire Fighters there is always the risk of fire at an accidnet scene. Wool is definately a must.

Well, yeah.. You will probably be sick to death of hats when you're done, but it's a thought to keep in the back of your mind someday. ;-)
