A summer hat?

It’s the middle of July, the middle of summer, and the sunburn on my arm is preventing me from being in direct sunlight. So what am I doing? Well, I’m knitting a hat. Am I crazy? It’s the middle of July for goodness sake! Have I been sitting in the sun for too long? No, I’m not crazy (well, maybe I am but not in that way), I just needed to tie up some lose ends. I started this hat in early May and I had to put it down due to some pressing knitting deadlines. Now is the time to finish it before fall and before moving on to other nice projects. There are only a few pattern repeats left and then there will be more summer-y knits.
