If You Walk in the Woods, You need a Hunting Hat
When I heard the first shots ring out last month I hit the dirt. Had I forgotten about hunting season? Just bird hunting season, for which, in theory you don't need to wear blaze orange, humans not usually being mistaken for birds. In anticipation of Deer Hunting season I started in making more hats, adding to our collection.
Our visitors often are unaware that they might look like a deer to a hunter, so I like to provide lots of hats.
Wool is my favorite, so we're safe and warm. Bartlettyarns Maine Wool in Blaze Orange is my yarn of choice. I get it at Unique One, Sweaters and Yarn, in Camden, and I know they ship. This year I also had some bright orange, Princess, by Classic Elite, which I made into a feminine watch cap, with a simple scalloped edge I found in Nicky Epsteins, Knitting on the Edge.
Not a hunter? Never mind, in the woods you need to wear blaze orange.
