My daughter’s boyfriend is a science geek and proud of it! We’re proud of him, too! Dylan loves to make things that move and light up, he’s a wiz at electrical gadgets and is a bit of a mad scientist. So, for his Christmas present I decided to make him a light up hat. His favorite color is purple, so I crocheted him a purple pseudo-newsboy cap and wove in battery operated Christmas lights.
He loves the hat! YAY! I am sure at some point the lights will be cannibalized to be used in some other gadgetry, but that’s all good. It was a fun project. I used Plymouth Gallway for the majority of the hat, there’s just one round of glow in the dark yarn that I have hoarded in my stash.
