Hats in Hot Weather; Giveaway

Several of my favorite things to do….

This is how I’ve been spending time of late… Yes, that’s right. I’m knitting hats. In the summer.

Hats are ideal summer knitting, for a number of reasons: they are small and very portable, easy to throw into your beach bag or suitcase. And hats are mostly plain and simple knitting, which means they are well suited to knitting in the car on a roadtrip, or by the soft light of an evening campfire, or while distracted talking to friends or enjoying a frosty beverage.

Yes, that’s right. Hats. Woolly hats. Several of them.

Hats are also excellent summer knitting because you know you will be ready the moment the weather takes a turn for the worse.

If you’re so inclined, we have a giveaway for you, for a pack of yarn to make the beautiful Anja Beret, from our First Fall issue.

The prize comprises 2 skeins of Quince & Co. Chickadee, with a value of $14.40.

Ready for cold weather in style!

The usual rules apply for our giveaway: Leave a comment on this post before midnight, eastern time, on Wednesday, August 1, 2012.

    THis hot summer has all of us dreaming of cooler weather. Knitting a hat may just be the thing.

    Ohh, I’ve only read so many good things about Quince & Co but I’ve never even touched any. I would love the chance. xox

    I love that hat. I have been knitting hats too but I am knitting preemie hats. Some of my friends and I have a little knit/crochet group that we have put together. We call ourselves The Bronson Cast-Offs. We meet at our public library and we really enjoy meeting.

    Personally, I think socks are the best type of project for summer knitting, but I would still love to win a hat kit! 🙂

    I really like the slouch hats, they are a little easier on the hair. I struggle with flat hair-itis in the winter. Love the red and grey color combo.

    I have only tried this type of knitting once – with passing results, except I couldn’t get the socks on my feet… Minor problem, I guess. I’d love to try again with some nice yarn and hopefully improve my skills.

    After making baby hats for the grands, I’d like to take the plunge (warm weather word, there!) and try an adult one. This looks like just the one!
