This hat is a Christmas present for Juliet, one of my best friends, who was my bio lab partner all through high school.  In grade 11, we built a model of DNA out of candy and toothpicks. 

She recently got two piercings in the cartilage of her ear (aka helix) and was very amused about her double-helix piercing.  Unfortunately, she had to take them out before they healed to have an MRI after a car accident on her first day back at school.  She's not hurt, but her ear is swolen and infected, so the double-helixes are no more.

Since she can't have her double-helix in her ear, she can wear them on her head.

I added some more of her favorites, like large fluffy homemade pompoms and lime green, just to make it a 100% Juliet hat.

Very cool hat! I'm glad she's not hurt and sorry about her piercings. Once the swelling goes down, is she going to get them redone?
