As a child growing up in Chicago, I couldn’t wait for the first snow fall. I would spend hours on end snowball-throwing, snowman-building and snow angel-making, only going inside for a quick snack and a dreaded pee break (it was always a hassle undoing your snowsuit and the many layers beneath it). It was the most magical time for sure.
Now as a Cali resident, I don’t get to experience those whimsical winter days, frolicking through the snow for hours on end, as I did a carefree kid. There is still something about being in and around the snow that brings me back to my childhood.
So I’d like to dedicate this knit pom pom hat roundup to all of those adults out there who daydream of snow angels and epic snowball fights. Keep the winter spirit alive!
