A good sturdy WARM winter hat. I made a little loop at the top so it could hang by the door. It looks nice hanging there. I was going to take a picture but he seems to be wearing it. It's only -27 C this morning but his 12 minute drive to work is in a fairly cold vehicle. A hat is nice. It makes me very happy that he appreciates it.
And I got a bonus cowl. I didn't need even an inch from the first ribbing to finish the hat. Yay me.
I am also making some mittens.
I am using the lovely brown heather from MacAusland's for these. The 3 ply thickness knit firmly will make a great pair of snowblower mittens. With a bit of a loop to hang the by the door near the hat.
I'm sitting tight here at home the next few days. It's just too darn cold. I am going to knit on that blanket. It is of a size that it covers my lap and that is perfect for a day like today.
