Pedestrian safety, that's the main reason for the new neon hat. My daily walk is lovely - it's right out the front door with varied scenery and rolling hills. But the road is narrow with blind corners and it helps everyone when the joggers and dog walkers and bicyclists are easily seen.
I ripped out this version of the hat. It was a tight cone and looked stiff. The second try was all wrong as well, for different reasons and didn't warrant a picture. But I like the third hat - floppy and bright and fun.
