The Sewist

I sew, knit and crochet hats. (Not all at the same time. Whaddaya think I am - a machine?)

Warm and Happy

This is the kind of hat-and-scarf combo that would have kept me warm today. I daresay this model has a pair of matching mittens or gloves, but it's hard to tell in this photo since it's cropped right where the scarf ends. But scarves and hats feel utterly pointless unless there's something on the hands on a day so cold that even the squirrels stayed home. It doesn't matter if the gloves complements the rest of the outfit. They could be from snatched from the lost-and-found or holey beyond embarrassment. When it's really cold all that matters is that those precious 10 digits get covered up and prevent an El Nino-sized draft from coming up your jacket sleeve. Now that I look at this picture some more closely I'm certain this girl's hands are covered or that picture was snapped on a fairly warm day. Or she wouldn't be smiling. The only happy people outside during the winter are the ones who are warm. Don't you think?
(By the way, if you're interested in the scarf/hat set, scoot on over to Lily Chin's Signature Collection. This is a new knitting pattern from her Expressions book, published in June, long before this season's onslaught of 30 degree Fahrenheit weather.
