Happy Birthday lukadreaming  
Happy Birthday Luka! I do not come bearing fic...

...but I do have a hat modelled here by yours truly.

It fits both of us so I think I can make a reasonable claim that it's "one size fits all" and the orangey thing both looks a little like a flower and is made from no less than two hyperbolic planes with uniform negative curvature (I've not yet explained uniform negative curvature - I'm making a simply huge crochet thing which I will photograph and post with an explanation at some point).

I can either send you the hat (in which case you need to PM or email me an address) or give it to you when we meet up in March.

OMG, thank you, that's gorgeous! And amazingly enough, I'd seen one similar (knitted, though, not crocheted) which I'd thought about buying, but the company's website bounced me out!

Naturally, though, theirs wouldn't have had cool hyperbolic planes!

Will email you! Thank you again.

It's a pleasure.

I am seriously in love with that hat. *g*

I'm very pleased with it, it's certainly not bad for a first attempt and the colours work well together (more by accident than design, but even so).

It's not often one gets a woolly hat that's a scientific wonder as well :-)

Indeed! One couldn't just crochet up a hat, that would be boring! *g*
