I finished my hat on Saturday and took it out for a spin on Sunday when temperatures were in the low 20s. The hat kept my ears nice and warm and happy. (I made the same hat in a different shade of blue for my dad for Christmas.)
We anticipated a major snow storm for days leading up to a disappointing overnight downpour of rain and sleet followed by a bit more than an inch of snow Saturday morning.
The snow made things pretty but the ice left the roads treacherous. (Side roads rarely get plowed here in central NC. We generally wait until temperatures climb above freezing and for things to melt.)
Now on the needles is the same hat pattern but in green. This hat will have a Harry Potter color scheme in it. I'll share more when I'm done.
Pattern: Bankhead on Ravelry
Yarn: Rowan pure wool
Have a wonderful day! Patty
