Improving the Hat

Dear Liza,

Last Christmas, Bridgett’s mom Donna gave me a great wool hat. It is very warm, gives protection from our bright Fall sun, and looks great. What could be better?

Well, I had an idea. Since our nights are getting longer, it would be nice to be easy to see on our after-dinner walks. Remember, a few years ago I sewed lights onto my big wool coat? Unfortunately, it made carrying grocery bags difficult and I was always afraid of tearing the lights off.

So I carefully unstitched the lights from the coat and sewed them into the hat!! The wire will go down into my pants pocket and be safe from bag handles and such.

It took a while to get it just right, but Sunday evening, I gave it a try, and it worked really well! I will stand out like a street lamp on my next walk in the neighborhood.

I look forward to getting out and about, even when it is dark and cold.
