How Are YOU Surviving The Snow?
It seemed rather appropriate to me, given last week's post and more snow this week - and still yet more to come this weekend, grrr - that I do a follow-up post on what I do when I'm snowed in. Besides writing, that is. So here it is, what I do - knit hats! Kind of appropriate, don't you think? Since I love to knit and it's cold out there, I was inspired to knit myself a new hat. And not just any hat. No, I trolled the web until I found one that inspired me, called The Day's Eye Hat. I bet you want to see it, don't you? You will - but first, here are some pictures of the process:
The lovely yarn:
Just starting out, it looks kind of like this:
And further on, it's like this:
And when it's done, it will look something like this:
I bet you're wondering how. Stay tuned! Will post pictures when it's done.
(Note: For anyone who's interested, they can see the pattern and more pictures of the hat here. Another note: I decided to use dpns for the beginning round because I tried it with the circular and didn't like the way it came out - yes, I knit pretty far into the pattern before I ripped it out and started over - and feel I have more control with the dpns.)
