First things first: as I'm sure you've read about already, Google Reader will be no more after the summer. I read blogs via a combination of Blogger Dashboard and BlogLovin' so I don't think this will affect me. However, if you are switching from Google Reader, you can keep up to date with this blog via BlogLovin' here. I also have a Facebook page here.
As I type this it's trying to snow outside...what crazy weather this is! Perfect weather for a cosy knitted hat.
|Quadruple me makes: cable hat, owl handwarmers, minoru jacket and snood|
I used the same chunky tweed wool as for my owl handwarmers and this free pattern. The hat was a breeze to knit up. I started on circular needles but once I started the decreases I switched to dpns.
When I started this hat a few weeks ago I wasn't sure if I would get any wear out of it this year. Oh how optimistic I was! This cosy woolly has been very handy at keeping my ears toasty warm in this chilly weather. Here is my hat "in the wild" on a trip to Melton Mowbray (excuse the face, it was rather brisk!)
