November is officially here and although it is freaking me out a bit that we only have five weeks left in the semester, it is perhaps a good thing for many aspects of my life. The leaves have turned, fallen, and are transforming into a mushy slippery goo that threatens to kill me every time I walk back to my apartment. The cold has dipped down to temperatures in the 40s that feel like the 30s. My hands are cold, but thankfully my hair is not to the freezing point yet.
In that respect though, the cold is coming. Water Polo practices lasting until 11 pm will leave my head as an icy mess. Sadly, my favorite ski beanie has decided that our long, loving relationship must come to an end. After a camping trip, he left me and is either laughing at me from some corner of my apartment, blowing along the Aiderondack's or is on a mountain somewhere in Boulder, Colorado. Nevertheless, I have had my mourning period and now must move on before my hair does freeze.
The initial internet wanderings have led me to the following candidates.
This pom pom style hat makes its way to the list because of the bright colors. My last beanie of many years was a gray knit with red and orange circles, and what can I say? Old flames die hard.
Secondly, knits are always a favorite over fleece.
The second knit is also here due to color choice. I tend to wear a lot of black when I ski, so I like to break it up a bit.
Lastly, all I really have to say about this hat is that it's fun to toe the line between the light and the dark side.
Hopefully a suitable cap will find its way into my heart and onto my head in the near future. I really do not enjoy icicles for hair.
