I finished John’s hat this afternoon, just as snow started to fall. He wore the hat to shovel and has pronounced it his new favorite hat. The pattern is bikey beanie from Alterknit Stitch Dictionary. The dark yarn is Knit Picks Hawthorne and the light blue is Dreams in Fiber. Both yarns have been in my stash for at least a decade.
Yesterday we didn’t need coats to play outside. Today we needed all of our winter gear. Winter in Iowa can keep you on your toes.
I hope you are kicking off your weekend with whatever makes you happy.
