Stay Warm

As it is wont to do here, it's warming up again before the next Arctic blast of cold - but here's the industrial strength hat and scarf (with my polar fleece neck/face warmer). You can see why it has to be really cold to wear this stuff. I love it! This year I'm going to see about getting some mittens to match.

It's a lazy Sunday here - and I really have to get the Christmas stuff down :-D But I have some Wensleydale on the wheel and I'd like to finish it up. I actually got it because it reminds me of Wallace & Gromit. Wensleydale is the cheese that Wallace loves :-D

Wensleydale is a long wool - very lustrous. I have some bluish black and some natural. The natural is almost a buttery shade of cream. I'm thinking some dressy mittens . . . we'll see. In the mean time, I had better get cracking on the Christmas stuff - this is getting to be far too protracted a process, even for me.

Is the black part of the hat? It looks like you have wild purple head and are wearing a REALLY BIG black headband -- hee!

It is part of the hat :-D It does look like I have wild purple hair flying around on the top of my head - but it's all hat :-D
