With temperatures soaring to 37C this week, I needed to work on something small, experimenting with a crochet headband to keep my hair back seemed like the perfect fit.
When it gets hot here the wind normally comes up, so sitting outside feels like being in a blast furnace. A couple times this week I felt like cutting my hair off (it’s quite long, almost down to my waist). I can’t wait for this heat wave to be over!
