The snowflake pattern is great, but it's not the best part of this hat. Check out the crown.
Then last night I had that vague feeling that I didn't feel quite right, and I was gradually becoming more aware of the presence of my throat than one normally should be. I went to bed trying to be optimistic, but when I woke up this morning I knew it was a lost cause. The rational part of my brain keeps telling me colds are caused by viruses, not by standing out in freezing temperatures with bare hands. The not so rational part is agreeing with the neighbours - I must have been crazy.
