I've been wearing my Last Minute Purled Beret pretty consistently. It's colorful, it's cute (especially since the blocking eased out and it no longer looks as much like a Guinan hat), and it goes with pretty much everything. But it's not as warm as I would like. And it has been cold lately. It's not Wisconsin down here or anything, but a high of 13F is pretty chilly wherever you are. So I wanted a meatier hat. But, you know, cute. Oh, and ear covering was of utmost importance.
So allow me to introduce my Spicy (the color) Capucine! Super cute, super thick and warm, and good ear coverage. A winner all around! Even if my co-workers now call me everything from Amish Girl to Little Red Riding Hood. Hee!

So now I'm very inspired to finish Gator's purple hat so he can enjoy some warm-ear new hat love, too! Off I go!
