At 5:30 a.m., he's jumping on the bed.
The only trouble with walking first thing, before breakfast and showers, is that my hair often looks like I just rolled out of bed which, of course, I did, but one doesn't want to go out in public like that, even if it is 5:45 a.m. I have lots of hats for winter walks and that works great as hair camouflage. Summer is a little tougher. I've never been a girl to wear a baseball cap. This summer, I did swipe one from our son's room -- a jazzy plaid number -- and have worn it a few times, but it's really not me.
So I found this little hat pattern, available from DROPS Design. I have crocheted two of them so far, both in self-striping sock yarn. The first I made in acrylic, which is really perfect for a summer morning as it's not too hot. The most recent one I made with wool sock yarn which I had left over from a scarf I made last winter. They're goofy looking but I like them, and I don't have to worry if my hair is sticking up weird or anything.
