I think I'm growing more and more allergic to wool. It is especially difficult now to wear wool hats. The other day when I was out to lunch with friends, I found myself scratching and rubbing my forehead. Leslie noticed my discomfort and suggested that I put polar fleece around the inside brim to make it more bearable. After lunch Phyllis took me to her sewing room and cut me a piece of fleece she had (knitting buddies are the best).
As you can see I like strange hats. The novelty yarn that was popular a couple of years ago, I would combine with 5 other strands of yarn and make chunky, strange creations. This year I'll leave the wool alone and go with cotton and, gasp, more acrylic.
