Jeremy Walker's hat

We've been here before with the Jeremy Walker hat thing, but he and I have known each other for a long time and we're beyond being casual acquaintances (at least, I think we are), so here we are again.

For me, Hats for Cats—the hats I make for jazz musicians and others associated in some way with jazz or music (sometimes it's a musician's mom, for example, sometimes a club owner or a server)—are a type of karma. If you believe that what goes around comes around, and I do, with all of my heart, then a gift made by hand with respect and affection is, by definition, bankable. Earlier today, another musician for whom I've made a hat (I've also made hats for his son, born nine months ago today) said that he thinks the hats are talismans. I hope he's right. Especially those baby hats.
