When the north Wind doth blow…

and we shall have snow,
And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?
He’ll sit in a barn and keep himself warm
and hide his head under his wing, poor thing.

This cold weather has certainly turned my attention to my own need for warm hats. Firstly I turned out this. Which is the The Republic Hat made in LLama Classic Brown (64) on 6mm needles.

Then for hubby I made him a little beanie hat. He doesn’t like a hat that creeps into his eyes so I thought this might fit the bill.
Lavender in Winter Beanie It was made with Classica Llama Grey (74) with 7mm needles and a little of the brown for the colour work. This is my first attempt at any colour work and I am very pleased with it.

And then as the weather has continued to get very cold my attention turned to a thicker hat for myself or should I say a hat with a nice big brim. This is the Seaman’s Cap made from Collinette Iona, Summer Berries in 4.00 and 4.5 mm needles. Its lovely, fits a treat and due to the lovely large brim keeps me and my frosty ears very, very warm.
