I have finally decided to call the Double Knit Duckie Hat finished. So this afternoon I gave it a bath, set it outside so it could try in a few minutes. Seriously. o.0
Then I took a few pics of it. The neighbors on either side of me came out halfway through the photoshoot. George was being a total diva and did not care for the stares and unwanted attention. He is not an attention whore unlike some I know. Feh. But that's a post for another day. Just a reminder though HATE PEOPLE.
That reminds me, I'll post the winners to the contest soonishly. (plus the rest of the prizes in that same post.) TKK still needs to pick the winners out of a bowl. That's how she said she wanted to do it since she is the impartial judge here. Said the random number thingy bored her. She also said if you emailed me anything nasty regarding the contest or any of the idiotic crap that came about from it that you hadn't a snowballs chance in hell of being selected. I thought I held a grudge, this cat is on fire. *L*
So anyway the Duckie Hat. I think I started this thing in December of 2006. o.0 That is a freak of a long time. My oldest UFO. Granted it didn't take that long to knit it. I had other stuff to do and then I wasn't sure... now I jiust plain love it.
Here's the side of the Duckie Hat I'll be wearing if I'm in a good mood and the alert level for me killing you is low to medium. Low to medium is pretty much normal. :P
You can tell it's the good day side by the bright happy yellow duckie.
This is the Bad Day side of the hat where the chance of me killing you is medium to high. Generally reserved for extreme stupid asshats who make a pile of shit look worthy of an award for intelligence and integrity.
You can tell it's the moody side because of the dark sullen grey duckie. This duckie wants to rip your throat out if you act like a dumbass around it.
So far this has been tested once. A stupid person who is worth so little regard or remembrance that I do not recall her name once commented on the duckie hat and said that I should not ever wear that shade of grey as it was not flattering. No I did not know this person well, nor did I give two shakes of a monkeys ass about her opinion. Needless to say she has not been seen since. *evil Grin* The Grey Bad Mood Duckie does not tolerate stupidty.
The funny thing is that given the two colors I think it's the yellow I can't pull off as well. *L* Thankfully that is the good natured duckie and won't come after me for saying such a thing.
Perhaps creating a Good/Evil Duckie Hat that wants to destroy mankind wasn't the best thing for the continuation of the world. Oh well, Good or Evil, time will tell who wins this battle. :P
Here's the top of the Duckie Hat. I did a simple round decrease.
This is the chart I made for the Duckie Hat.
It's based on the Sports Racer Duckie from The Show, with Ze Frank. The show is over and the ORG closed up. *sigh* I only keep in touch with a few of the other Sports Racer. I think I miss Ride the Fire Eagle Danger Day most of all though.
When the show was a few months out from coming to it's one year experiment end I decided I needed to make myself a Sports Racer Hat. It sorta evolved from there. *L*

I actually finished knitting on it sometime last year. Then several months later I weaved in my ends. Then it sat in my UFO Bag while I decided if I wanted to add beady little evil eyes. But I think it's evil enough as it is. Plus I was considering Duplicate stitching over a slightly wonky area on the duck bill... er duck beak? You get the point. I decided it was prefect as it was in it's slightly wonky way. :D I has the love for my Duckie Hat.
It is truly the most comfortable hat EVER.
The honey wants me to make him one with some kind of Dinosaur who's name I do not recall at the moment. That should be fun. :D
Hey Cookie, what kind of Double Knit Hat do you want? *dances* Hello Kitty unless you say otherwise. :P
Ooo I'll have a thinky. I has some ideas.... I'll get back to you....
Anyway so that's my Double Knit Duckie Hat of Doom. Your Doom if you know what's best for you. :P
