NOTE: The Big Hit Beanie is the new and improved version of the Churchill Hat, also listed as the Precious Purple Knit Beanie

It's been a hot summer here in Charleston. Our normally somewhat mild (though humid) summer days have been replaced with temperatures and heat indices of 100+ degrees (and still humid).


When I was a kid, one of my strategies for surviving scorching Texas summers was to read books like "The Long Winter" by Laura Ingalls Wilder, and pretend it wasn't quite so hot where I lived. Fast forward to today and you'll find me knitting winter garments, pretending it's not quite so hot where I live. Some things really don't change, do they?

If you, too would like to escape summer by preparing for winter, here is a free hat pattern for you!
