It is still very very cold. And we have been having fluctuating temperatures. From leaving the house at 5 degrees, to ice and sleet, and now 40 degrees followed by a healthy dose of rain. What oh what is a girl to do. I picked up my crochet hook, and a fabulous yarn, and started a hat on a whim.
I think that sometimes inspiration can hit you anywhere, and it hit me with the changing of the weather. One moment you have over dressed and you wish you had a simple sweater and jacket, and the other moment you are looking at trees covered in white, and another moment, you are cold again with the rain. I wanted to have a hat to depict all of that with just color. This is what I got at the end.
I looked at the hat, and I noticed that happily I made it long enough so that it warms up someone’s ears during the winter. And then I asked the questions. What if I don’t want to warm up the ears. Then what? And this is what I came up with.
I looked at my creation with that gorgeous soft yarn, and decided that it needed a test run in the cold. So, I took the hat outside and this is how it looked.
I mean how else are you going to know how the hat looks, but outside on the bare snowy elements! How about a side view to see the gorgeous colorful design! Of course let me know what you think. Note that this hat is up for grabs.
