spring time headwear

Nothing like a 26 degree morning (in Philadelphia) to remind everyone that spring is here.
The forecast is for sunny and high 40s this afternoon - perfect for my recycled cotton knit beanie; made in the USA.

Hope that you are warm/cool and comfortable where ever you are and remember to wear hat.
