7th of December – fibers on friday

Now that I’m back to blogging I might as well do a post for the traditional fibers on friday. You might remember my friend Beth and I used to blog about our knitting most Fridays of last winter and during the year of 2011.

So, I’m back knitting. I started this years knitting with a hat for myself. It’s not the best looking hat but it sure is one of  the warmest, most practical and comfortable hats I’ve ever owned. I wear it all the time when I’m out working in the garden, when I go walking up the hill or driving down to the village. I’ve even started wearing it walking through the village and as of yesterday on my trips into the city. Maybe it looks handmade, nobbly and not exactly fashionable. But wow, I’m warm!!  So this is a case of creature comfort overcoming vanity and I’ll extend my bravery into posting one of those very rare selfies to show you the hat.

The only regret I have is that I didn’t use another colour. I used left over wool from way back when for this one so my choices of colour where limited to blue, green, black, white or a kind of rusty brown. I chose to use blue and green running two threads in parallel so that the hat is kind of petrol coloured and also nice and chunky, thick and warm.
However, now that I’m out wearing it into town with the fingerless gloves I knitted last year I am sorry I didn’t pick the rusty brown colour because that would have been a matching set. Ah well. I guess I’ll be knitting another hat shortly just as soon as I finish the socks I’m working on.

Happy Friday to you all!
