You don't need me to tell you it's darn cold out there. The snow taunts The Boss as she doesn't understand the whole wind chill factor thing. To her, snow=sled and snow=make snowman and snow=coming in for hot chocolate after playing in the snow. I assured her there will be plenty of time to build another snowman.
In fact, I made some accessories for him!
Ok, really, the hat is for me. Love all of the colors. Love them. But....I realized that maybe I'm not really a multi-color wearing girl. I waver back and forth on it. I might do some matching mittens though because I think they'd be really pretty mittens. I think I need to stick to solids or semi-solids for me. I like wearing it though since it fits me perfectly and it definitely keeps me warm.
This is the scarf I made for my brother Steve for Christmas. He's a pretty earthy guy and not one to wear a lot of color, so I wanted to stay pretty muted. Once I got about half way done, I was even more certain he'd love it. I got comments on it every time I worked on it during my commute. My husband all of a sudden wanted a scarf, too.
My neighbor Brian scoffed when I said I was making a scarf in that 'will he even wear it?' kind of way, but he sang a different tune when I showed it to him. Then he said, "oh, that looks like something you can get at the Gap" which I took to mean it was an acceptable man knit. Except this has love in it and you can't buy that at the Gap! I stole the scarf back from Steve just for a wee bit so that I could give it a good soak and lightly block it since I didn't have time to do those things prior to wrapping it up. Oh my, did this get even softer. I really didn't want to give it back, but I think that just means I'll have to make myself a more colorful one for myself.
Oh wait, didn't I just say I wasn't a multi-color kind of girl?
