For the cold, cold winter

I needed a simple knitting project to work on during the busy, busy days of December.

So of course, I started a hat. Not that I wear them a lot (it’s hardly ever really cold here and this winter is a really strange one, temperatures are still in the 40’s F (around 9 C). And knit-a-square announced they have surplus of hats, so I couldn’t make it for them.

But I still made a hat. Because I felt like it.

This hat turned out to be the first one my husband ever found acceptable on me. He usually doesn’t like how I look in hats (I don’t really either).
I used the rest of the yarn (I had three skeins in different colors – a gift from my girls) to make myself a simple cowl. A bit too pink for me, but I made sure to concentrate most of the pink at the bottom, so that will be covered by my coat when I wear it.

It will keep me nice and warm. So where’s that horror winter they predicted? (can’t find a link to an english article about it, but boy, were they wrong!)

  1. you can have some of our winter! we have been having record breaking windchills and temps. below zero F for days here. our friends north of here had less than -40 and i learned that -40 is the same C and F. COLD!!!and – i'd love to see a pic of you in the hat and cowl. 🙂


  2. Oh yes, that's extremely cold! I heard about your winter, but I can hardly imagine. The sea warms the climate here, so 0 degrees F would be very cold already.I will try to take a picture of me in the hat and cowl, but I''m not so keen on pictures of myself these days (I'm tired and it shows)
