Free Warm Hat

I know. I haven't posted in what seems like eons. It took this cute hat to shake me loose.

The drama leading to this surprising change involves myofascia pain, plus an escalating allergy to wool.

For a few decades I have depended heavily on a certain brown wool hat that was of the up-most importance to my comfort. Other wool hats were worn on trial bases, but none of them fit well enough to meet needs. I lost the good one once in a large medical center and went into a panic until someone turned it in to the lost-and-found desk where I shakily, almost tearfully, retrieved it. Gloom descended recently when I realized my constant sneezing, dripping nose and red itching eyes were a reaction to the little brown hat. I had to resort to wearing a washable, cotton kerchief which makes me look like the old grandma that I am. "Kerchief", as in: "And ma in her kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap." (from poem "The Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clarke Moore)

Today, I came across this blog post about the giveaway of a cute, warm-looking hat. I will enter the contest in hopes of winning, and if so, hope it will suit my needs well enough that I can retire the granny kerchief. If not, I hope that I may be on the cutting edge of a new fad: "cozy kerchiefs"!

How do you like her hats? Reminds me of the flapper era.

I wear my hair severely short so this style should work well for me.

Thank you for stopping by. Maybe I will start posting again. I don't know...
