In an action packed, double-whammy, triple X, late-night-double-feature-picture-show special, we bring you the results of the final hat of the week of 2010, AND, the results of hat of the year. We're just so good to you.
The final hat of the week saw The Knitter up against The Biggest Little Christmas Tree. Despite its ultimate bling, volume, incredible craft, and fake plastic finger nail, the Tree was pipped to the post by The Knitter. Commended for the genius of the creation, the limitless patience the knitter of The Knitter must have had, and for being an all-round icon of what the Big Knit is all about. Huge congratulations go to Jackie Cryer for her exquisite creation.
Next up, the winner of the hat of the year. Having seen so many hats, we brought four of our favourites together in one place. The competition showed Robin Balboa's defeat of Hairy Claus, and The Last Unicorn beat Binface through to the finals (despite Binface's snazzy sunglasses). The final round was always set to be fierce, but there could only be one winner to take the titluar crown of "hat of all hats". Despite an intense race towards the end of today, at time of going to press, the Unicorn was in the lead with 1656 votes, a mere 28 votes ahead of the Robin. And here he is again, in all his golden horned glory.
Congratulations to Susan Smith for her prize-winning Unicorn.
And there ends the competing hats for 2010. We've seen peas in pods, viking hats fight bears with scarves, a dangley competition, the funky chicken take on a flock of hens (and loose), hat gang wars, a robot hat going against a squid, a mythical battle of a frog prince against a unicorn, an egg and spoon race against the owl and the pussycat, a halloween special, a rafter fighting a pokemon, a common cork hat beating royalty, and a beard off. It's been immense, it's been tense, and it's been a whole lot of hats.
Until next year...
