That's right! I am letting everyone know it. I have officially gone MAD.
When The Crochet Crowd created this challenge, they never dreamed that they would get the response that they did. They assumed that at most 50 hats would arrive in the mail & that choosing a winner would be a breeze. To their amazement they received nearly 350 hats from all over the world. So many hats that they had to completely change their mindset on how to judge & display so many hats. Their booth at the Creativ Festival has been taken over by all things Alice! If I could find a way across the border in time for the festival, I would totally be there as I am sure it is going to be something you would have to see to believe.
The pictures show here are pictures I took of my entry before I mailed it off to Canada for my chance to be a part of Creativ Festival history. I am very proud to say the majority of my hat was made through trial & error with no pattern. All of which adds to it's individuality. Not bad for someone who has only been crocheting for a few years, eh?
Want to see the other entries, awesome! Click here. I was blown away by just how amazingly talented my fellow Crochet Crowders are! I hope to see more challenges like this in the future, as I had so much fun taking part. The chance of winning that prize doesn't hurt either! ;)

Aren't you just mad about these hats!?!?
