I know in my secret heart that I am happiest with a nice deep brim. I know, I really really KNOW that this means a minimum of five inches of ribbing (which when you fold it in half and stretch it onto your head turns into more like two and a half inches of brim).
So why am I trying this on now. Now when it is clearly not yet five inches.
Because that right there is the quickest way to ensure a hat languishes at the bottom of the hat bin, never to be worn.
Maybe some day I’ll learn to not even start to get my hopes up until I’m a full five inches in. But today is not that day.
