Not your typical hellcat biker chic and
Li'l Deb would say "that's not a bad thing!"

Just in the St Nick of Time

For Christmas I asked daughter-who-knits for a cheery hat that is warm, soft, and will shield my eyes and cover my ears from high winds that swirl up snow devils.  

Look what I got on Christmas day.

...and the night after Christmas we had the beginning of our first Nor'easter with typical cold, high wind, snow drifts, etc. and by the evening of the 27th we had over 20" of snow.  In the eye of the storm my hat was perfect! Perfect! and I love it! 

The yarn used is Sirdar's Click/Chunky with Wool and the pattern is the Snowboarder Hat that Rocks.  

...Happy Trails...

Rock Lobster

How could I forget to post a photo of my very loverly 100% pure cashmere mittens from daughter-who-knits?!  The pattern is in Melanie Falick's Knitting New Mittens and Gloves.

It took two skeins of Cape Cod Fiber's Lobster Pot 100% pure Cashmere from my stash.  The color is Hyrangea (my favorite colourrr).  BGITWWW picked out the recycled Eileen West mother of pearl buttons.  These are so soft and warm and I wear them on the dreariest of days because they are the cheeriest.
