As probably everyone is aware, it’s pretty cold in the Midwest right now. Like, I consider myself lucky that we’re at 4 degrees, and not the -20 and colder temperatures they’re getting north of us. But work awaits, despite the frigid air, and as I was bundling up to this morning to go to work, jealous that the boy got to stay home in his warm bed, I decided it was cold enough for a hat. As much as I love to knit hats, I don’t love to wear them. I feel like I look dumb in them, plus I’m not a fan of hat hair at work. But: 4 degrees, with -20 windchill? I added the handknit hat to the coat, shawl, gloves ensemble. It was even cold enough that I took a wrap for my legs in the car (which was a marvelous idea, I have to say).
Anyway! This is a long way of saying that not only was my head warm this morning, but I realized I never properly showed off my newest hat! This is the fantastic Nour hat made with Malabrigo Rasta in the color Zarzamora.
I love the blend of green and purple in this colorway; it’s so gorgeous. And that pompom?? I got it from my LYS and it’s an interchangeable one with a snap, but I can’t imagine a better color for his hat. Still, if they had a dark green, that would be tempting.
Hope you’re all staying warm and safe today!
