This took surprisingly long to finish but it is off the needles! Just in time for... summer...
The Tentacula Hat by Jenny Noto uses a really neat stitch that's pretty easy to memorize and creates this texture.
Knit in Malabrigo Rios in Azules (there's more green than is coming through in the photos).
thank you for serving the tumblr tea. if i may ask a silly question, do you happen to know how tumblr's april fools days pranks are generally planned? #bringbackcoppy
Back in the day, it used to be a long process that started months in advance. Completely voluntary. It needed approval from the higher-ups too. The biggest one I remember was Decision 2016. Since it was meant to simulate an election day, it required staff to actually post events and such during the day like a developing news cycle. It culminated with the announcement of the winner (Mop). This took place in an "election day war room" for those who were actively keeping it running, pretending to be lizards (with hats!), and making deploys to update the results and such.
The victory scream by mop was done by one of our designers locking herself in a closet and screaming.
Anywho, nowadays April Fools doesn't have as much fanfare on Tumblr because they're lacking the people to dedicate much effort to them.
It is not warm hat season in my part of the world, but it is Pride month, so here’s some shameless self-promotion for my hand-knit pride hats. Every single one is designed and handmade from 100% wool by me (a queer trans person), which means that usually they’re made to order (this is a good time of year to place one because in the fall/winter there can be a line and thus a longer waiting period). Have an unusual head size? Want a style not listed in the shop? Message me for customization!
The hats come in three types:
There are your standard enthusiastic Pride flags, with stripes all over the hat. I’ve done more options than pictured here, and I have a discount listing for any that I haven’t made yet.
[Image description: photos of twelve knit hats with cables displayed on foam heads. Each hat is striped in the colors of a different pride flag: trans, lesbian, Philadelphia rainbow, aromantic, bi, nonbinary, genderqueer, asexual, aroace, agender, genderfluid, and intersex.]
The subtle version comes in a solid color of your choice, with pride flag colors of your choice in a narrow band above the ribbing. Of course, how subtle this one turns out depends on how many flags you want on it.
[Image description: photos of four knit hats with cables displayed on foam heads. Each hat is a solid color with a narrow band in pride flag colors. One is blue with asexual and aromantic colors, one is heathered green with genderfluid and agender flags, one is a muted blue-green with the bi flag, and one is dark gray with the genderqueer flag.]
The stealth version comes in a solid color of your choice from the outside, with pride flag colors of your choice hidden inside the band.

Top left is a blue-green hat, top right is the same hat with the band flipped back to show the bi and genderqueer flag colors hidden inside. Bottom right is a solid gray hat, bottom left is the same hat with the band flipped back to show the nonbinary and pan flag colors hidden inside.]
here is my piece for Ineffable Eras Zine - Blitz 1941!
Actually, this is my very first entrance to fanzines. When I got my acceptation mail from mods, I was literally SCREAMING of joy. You can’t imagine the amount of happines I felt, I still feel. Like, fck, they really want me, oh, jolly good, I’m in, I’M IN.
By the way, I’ve enjoyed the whole work process, from sketching main idea on the paper, searching references (I say just one word: HATS), playing with colors and posters on wall to adding last touches.
I want to thank to mods for having me, to other artists for helping me with art issues and also for sharing their wips (I saw each one of them at advance hahaha) and to everyone for having great fun and talk on discord chanel.
Great times, really. Thank you xxx
P.S. I forgot Crowley’s sunglasses, shame on me.
