I’m working on another caper hat right now for C.A.P.E.R. – the Caper Advancement, Promulgation and Enrichment Regime. C.A.P.E.R. has as its primary goal the creation and maintenance of a caper-friendly environment on earth and, by extension, all human-habitable environs.

Persuant to this, members of C.A.P.E.R. periodically assemble caper acoutrements such as caper hats, utility belts, maps of potential caper sites, etc. The caper hat is one of the most essential components of a successful caper; after all, what is the point of being a perpetrator of capers if one does not look the part?

It is therefore essential that C.A.P.E.R. members be consantly vigilant, looking for new materials and construction methods for caper hats. Black wool is the standard, but under certain conditions cotton may be favorable, or even (ugh) acrylic or other synthetics.

Currently I’m using Rowan Cork (90% merino, 10% nylon) for a woman’s caper hat. It’s a bit late in the season to make a hat out of mostly wool, but I have an awful lot of it on hand and am currently out of black cotton.

    Is there a special handshake or salutation for C.A.P.E.R. members? Perhaps a hazing ritual? :-)
