Lunchbox and Kirby got homemade top hats to celebrate! Lunchbox predictably refused to wear his, but Kirby didn’t protest at all.
I made the top hats using Aunt Lydia’s Fashion Crochet Thread Size 3 in Black and the smallest crochet hook I have (size unknown because it’s old and from China). Lunchbox’s is slightly shorter and more bowler-like. Each hat has a circumference of 6 sc and a brim of 9 sc. Lunchbox’s hat is 2 sc tall; Kirby’s is 1 sc + 1 hdc.
Kirby got excited about the Christmas lights I used for the photoshoot. He decided they made a great bed.
This is when I really wish we had double-sided tape…
On second thought, maybe not.
I am so excited that I finally caught Kirby mid-yawn!!
If you’re wondering how big the tortle top hats are…
For the photography geeks, here’s the setup I used:
The last set of photos, with Kirby falling asleep on the lights, was taken behind the board on the right. Kirby crawled over to the tangle of lights just visible on the right of this photo; happily, there were enough lights there for good photos.
