Ready for Winter . . .

There has been knitting going on here . . . but some of it is for the Advent Swap that I'm participating in on Ravelry . . . I'm not sure my partners (I have two of them!) are reading my blog, but just in case . . . I'll wait to post until after Christmas on a few things.

In the meantime, here is a hat and scarf set that I made - for myself. :-) This is Colinette One Zero yarn that I bought last year on the Isle of Iona. It's a prettier shade of green than this photo would have you believe. And I know that that hat looks gigantic . . . but, I have a gigantic head. almost 23" in diameter, and 16" from ear-overthehead-to-ear. I have a really lot of brains ;-)

The hat is a simple ridged one that I modified to fit me, and then modified to have a flat top instead of one pulled in. The scarf is Professor's Scarf. I'm looking forward to wearing them both - and the way it's going, I won't have long to wait. Temps here in the evenings are hovering around freezing now, although they are rising up into the 50's during the days.

It's November . . . October has gone. And I know I do this every year, but I love this song . . .

Uh, that's GREEN? Looks grey on my monitor! Hope it keeps you warm and cozy, friend. :-)

It does look kind of grey . . . but it's green. It's really beautiful. I'll have to try to take a photo of it outside.
