Happy Presidents Day!

Happy Presidents Day!

A George Washington wig and an Abraham Lincoln hat and beard adorn fence posts around the Old Burying Ground in Harvard Square.

Lincoln Hat and Beard

P.S. – Did you know that Alabama doesn’t celebrate Presidents Day in honor of Washington and Lincoln’s birthdays? They celebrate Washington and Jefferson.

    They look great! Any idea where the pattern can be found?

    • Thanks Bobbie! The patterns were made up as I went along. I may post the Abe Lincoln hat and beard in the future.

    You have totally inspired me to have a wig party where all the guests must wear crocheted and knitted wigs of some kind. I would love if you are ever able to write down and post the patterns.

    I love this so much I want to yarn bomb something for St Pats Day (unless there’s a holiday before then?)
    Your work is delightful! Just think of all the smiles you generate…
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Further Alabama holiday weirdness: When I lived there the state renamed/re-purposed Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to be King/Lee Day. As in Robert E. Lee.

  2. I love this! In Canada, our lawyers in the higher courts wear similar wigs. Great yarn bomb idea!
