Behold! I give you a Knitted Viking Helmet! Handmade for Marcus Camillo Henry Capua, born August 4th, 2007.

OK, so maybe it looks more like elf ears or something. Or maybe Yoda. I probably should have attached the horns differently (though I don’t think that would have helped). And, sure, it’s perhaps far too large for a newborn. But it’s a Viking Helmet. I mean, how cool is that? Marcus is going to be the baddest ass baby in his subdivision, I tell you. If anyone messes with him he’ll go all berserk and make with the raping and pillaging…right after his nap.

For the record, the pattern (and materials) come from Bella Knitting{.broken_link}. The hat, as pictured, is modeled by a fine but small specimen of spaghetti squash.
