Last night I finished knitting a basic earflap hat for Mr. S. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Seamus has outgrown most of his clothes; this includes hats. I’ve been told the New Jersey winters are atrocious, so I wanted to make him something that would cover both his head and ears and would fasten under his chin, so as not to be easily removed by little hands. I made this one out of Paton’s Classic wool, a great all-purpose winter yarn that is sure to keep you warm. However, you could use any yarn as long as you remember to check your gauge. It was so simple a hat, it only took a few hours time to complete.
Now that I have time to myself during the day, and I’m not yet working (and the TV is broken), there’s plenty of time for knitting and writing. I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts.
