Yesterday at work Jimmy was wearing a huge Afro wig (for a company event), and I almost had to run away and hide. Wigs are scary. Wigs slipping off people's heads are even scarier. The way people's hair looks after they have been wearing a wig on top of it, sticky with sweat and all those bobbie pins everywhere, is just gross. And the absolute worst? Chimps wearing wigs. Especially when the chimp-dresser puts a blonde wig with bangs on the chimp. Why do they always do that?
I wonder, does being afraid of wigs have anything to do with my desire to knit and wear hats? Who knows. But look, here's a hat I made last month:
The pattern (called Bobble!) is from Rowan Magazine #34, for those of you who might be wondering.
