Damon's Head

I've bought the tickets, so I'm pretty certain now that I'm going to see Badly Drawn Boy next month. He is one of my all time favorite artists. My love runs deep. Since the first time I heard Another Pearl off of Hour of the Bewilderbeast, I have been a fan. Last time I saw him I got a kiss on the cheek and an album signed. I was in heaven!

So, anyone familiar with BDB (aka Damon Gough) probably knows he has a certain affinity for hats, generally of the knitted touque variety. And now that I've developed a knack for this whole knitting thing, I'm going to embrace my inner geek and stroll proudly into the arena of crazy fan and knit him a hat.

This is going to be a pattern-free-seat-of-my-pants kind of thing and March 7th is my deadline. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

So let the rockstar knitting begin!!!

i think he'd look good in olive green with some orange and navy stripes. just a suggestion. might he also need some fingerless gloves? perhaps meg can get on those after she finishes up the other pair she's working up?

it wasn't the same a the cafe yesterday without you guys. btw, i've finished 2 of those freakin' squares. 2 to go.
