But not this year. The temperature has dropped dramatically, and the tile floors throughout this place don't do much to make a cozy environment. (Though they are easy to clean, so I count that as a win!). Last night I caved and put the heat on. I'm keeping it low though, so that still means I'm wrapped up in blakents, thinking warm thoughts....
So what better time for Practical Crafts to ask me to test knit a nice cozy winter hat?

As you know, I'm not a huge fan of colourwork. Oh, I love how it looks, but the execution of it... I've gotten better at it, but I'll still opt for lace over colour almost every time. But I saw the hat she was making... maybe it was the colours - I don't know, it just grabbed me. I asked her what pattern is was, only to learn it was one she was just winging. (That's some pretty good winging!)
