Reflections on a Vocational Happenstance
The strangest knitting suggestion I've had came from a woman who asked if I had seen the "Chicken Viking" hats. She happily Googled it for me when I looked at her askance and then assured me that she would wear it if I ever made it.
Remembering her gleeful chuckle may one day induce me to surprise her with it, you never know.
As unusual as the Chicken Viking hat is, there are plenty of exotic, eccentric items out there in the "Knitterverse". Human ingenuity knows no bounds.
