To paraphrase Patricia of Red Cardinal, I do believe that Sydney's three minutes of genuine winter have arrived. Arrived with a vengeance, bringing freezing night temperatures and cold air from the south.
So, as a break from sewing I did my yearly (or two yearly) bout of knitting which usually consists of a scarf but I made a hat as I now have short hair.
I made a striped 'elf' hat.
The pattern and wools are available from Lincraft. The thick soft 60 % wool 40% acrylic is Italian made and is available 'until sold out only'. I love the stuff so much I also made a wide headband for my daughter, who normally gets irritation from wool.
Unfortunately this will be my knitting fix for a while. An old tendon injury to my hand has flared up as a warning sign. *sigh*
So bear with me while I get arty modeling my self-made-elf hat..
Have a happy weekend everyone, happy fourth of July to you in the US, and happy woolly wearing if where you are happens to be cold,
