here is a hat I just finished! I'm very proud of it - it's a new style and i like it a lot. it's for an HGTV show called That's Clever whose crew will be showing up *tomorrow* (eep!) to prep me for filming the production of this hat.
here are all its component stages.
all those buttons (20 total) were fun to buy but man were they expensive.
Edited to add:
Whew! It went great! I was nervous but things seemed to go really smoothly.
What a whirlwind! There were only four of them, two cameras, the sound guy, and the director - the producer ran the B camera. I built a little set in the middle of my living room and pretended to make a hat on it.
It was really fun, although for the first time in my life I was The Talent.
This was a strange experience - right when they showed up, I directed them around a little, Showing them where to put stuff and where to park, but then very quickly & clearly my role was to get out of their way until they were ready for me.
We spent the first part of the day with me and the dog doing laps of the alley on my bike - I can only imagine how ridiculous that part will look. It got tense at the end as we went into overtime but what fun! I can't wait to see it, but I'll have to - spring at the earliest. I'll know in January when it airs.
