90) Cold snap!

It seems everyone in the Northern hemisphere is having cold, cold weather right now.  In the UK, we have had record lows, and snow, snow, snow!!

Except where I live, in East Anglia.  It’s been cold, for sure, but barely any snow to speak of yet.  I love the snow, so I have tried to entice it here with a new hat:

This is the simplest of simple patterns.  Knit up in my own ‘Wiggle’ yarn, on 12mm needles, it’s also incredibly fast; I finished it in an afternoon of not-exactly-continuous knitting.

I’ll be writing the pattern up later this week and offering it as a free download.  And, with any luck, there’ll be a shop update, too!

    I’m beginning to be convinced that the snow is all a fake. People are just showing photos from last winter – there is no snow apart from the light dusting we’ve had here.

  • No snow here, except for a tiny dusting, though the mild and temperate west coast of Canada got dumped on recently!
    My kids will *not* last through another winter with no snow, so I’m hoping for a moderate amount this year — enough to play in, not enough to be a chore to get around in!

  • We’ve had snow, but it’s currently raining and melting it all. And then freezing, so it’ll be maximally slippery.
    And it’s supposed to snow later on, on top of the ice.

    I love that hat!!
    And btw, I took the long scarf/shawl that you wove for me, into work last week (as an extra layer for cold moments), and I’ve had several very favourable comments about it. 🙂
