It has been really cold in San Francisco (39 degrees right now). All of my friends  have been complaining about how freezing it is….

All I could say was “Put on a hat!”

I spent 11 hours making polar fleece and wool jersey rollup hats. Polar fleece is very warm and soft…water repellent and wind proof….so no more complaining!

22 finished hats in 11 hours...

...and about a dozen more hats in the works.
