Welcome Fall!!!!!

September 18, 2007 at 7:11 pm 6 comments

This week our temperatures have finally taken a dip.  It’s been wonderfully chilly.  I find the crisp weather invigorating.  Historically, fall weather has escorted in a new school year, not to mention a new television season.  Even though I no longer attend school and the networks keep pushing their premieres out later and later in the year, I still associate the temperate drop with new beginnings.  Fall can be full of fresh starts.  And it brings forth great views (including gorgeous Virginia Creeper) and gives me spectacular hiking weather!  And there is one more thing fall heralds in…


I love sock hats!  They don’t fair quite well in the summer, so I have to relunctantly part ways with them.  But their haitus is over!  I already got to wear a sock hat around on Monday.  Life is good. 

And now, to overzealously prove my point, a series of photos to demonstrate my usage of my sock hats:

Angel’s Rest 2002 – Black Sock Hat

Bottom Creek Gorge 2003 – Green Sock Hat

Mill Creek 2003 – Grey Sock Hat 

Butt Mountain 2003 – I’m wearing TWO hats (can you take the madness?!?)- grey sock hat underneath and then a burgundy hat I crocheted

Kelly’s Knob 2004 – The Virginia Tech Sock Hat

Larry’s Car 2007 – Blue Sock Hat!

Yup, I’m looking forward to the fall adventures I will share with my sock hats in the coming months!

    Your most recent hat compliments your eyes beautifully.

    Thanks Katie! Unfortunately that sock hat was lost somewhere in Montana last April. Hopefully someone has given it a good home.

    I think the only pictured sock hats that have made it through without getting lost are the grey one and the Virginia Tech one. I will need to build up my supply this winter.

    Gotta agree with Katie, the blue is the best. Think I’ll stick with my Tilly Hat, thouhgh.

    And your pictures make me wish I had a good hiking dog. *sigh*

    @geekhiker – Yes, hiking dogs do rule!
    They’ve accompanied me on more hikes that any person. This weekend, the black one will be joining me on a backpacking trip. He’s great on chilly nights because he curls up on me and helps keep me warm.

    Of course, I haven’t found freeze dried dog food yet, so his meals do add some weight to my load. 🙂

    P.S. It didn’t take you long to catch up on my blog after your trip! I thought it would be at least a week.

    […] so Locks of Love it is!   I was poised to take advantage of Sock Hat Season to conceal any disasters if I had to go too short.  But it turns out I had more than enough […]

    […] NOW, Henry realizes that just three months ago, I hit a lot of you up for donations for Relay for Life.  So Henry’s upping the ante.  If you give Henry a donation for Bark for Life, then Henry will send you a crochet head-hugger hat.  Just in time for sock hat season. […]
