ALL THE MORE REASON TO KNIT WINTER HATS!
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?
