Since our kids started watching Yo Gabba Gabba, my husband and I have also become fans.  It's somewhat better to watch than The Wiggles, what with the Super Music Friends Show and Dancey-Dances...

Anyway, my husband decided he wanted a Brobee hat.  Not a hat that looked like Brobee sitting on top of his head, but one that would transform him into Brobee.  So, I let him pick out some bright green kids yarn from the craft store and went at it.  It's based on The Bullet pattern from Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-bullet and I "made up" the patterns for the horns and eyebrow and sewed them on securely once I was finished.

So far this is the best photo of someone wearing the hat.  She has a small, 4 year old sized head while my husband has a massive head, so it's obviously huge on her.  I will have to update with a photo of my husband wearing it so you can see how perfectly it fits.

That's so great!   I <3 Brobee!  The colors are perfect.

ETA: I totally dig Yo Gabba Gabba.  It used to be my son's favorite show for a long time.  He's 4.5 now, and I'm totally bummed he doesn't like the show anymore.  Hopefully he will again someday!

Yo Gabba Gabba is great.  We just got 2 new dvds of it so should keep us occupied for a while longer.  Our 4.5 year old still likes it and gets into the dancey dances and our 19 month old likes to sing along to the songs.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
