Naughty Nurse Cap
But why you ask? Well there is this great group of people called the Heinlein Society, and this will be the third year I have helped out with promoting their blood drive at Arisia as a Naughty Nurse. Good people doing good work and having a great time.
Pattern Source: Naughty Needles by Nikol Lohr
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool in white
Supplier: Woolcott & Co
Yarn: Knit Picks Pallette in red
Supplier: Knit Picks
Needle: US 15 / 10.0 mm
Stash Down Yardage: 115 yards
As an added bonus this project meant that I got to break in a needle felting set that I hadn't used yet. So I grabbed a random skein of Cascade 220 held doubled, and I was off. I have a freakishly small head, if anyone else was to do this I would recommend triple stranding the yarn.
And as the pattern gives no hints about actually wearing this, I have to say that if you can find them you would be a lot happier with Amish hair pins than bobby pins. You can stick them right through the felt to really secure it well, since they have pointer tips.
