unless you live outside the US,
or don’t care,
we’ve been in the midst of
a hard winter:
record low temps
fluctuating day temps
fallout from the sky that won’t quit.
so for two weekends in a row
dw+i stayed in:
we park gandalf friday night
and don’t start him up again till monday morn.
there may have been some half-hearted cleaning
serious Blue Blood viewing
(because TOM SELLECK)
i even slept in till 9am once, or twice.
i managed to finish a book
then this hat happened.
i’m not a hat person,
it’s the round face,
flat & short hair thing.
but i had a skein
of a single color
purchased out of the country
so something had to be done with it.
as it were
i had to add a white border
as i ran out of the purple.
it’s a chunky hat,
i can’t say if it’s warming
and when dw saw me wearing it
he got all bob marley-ish.
because i’m not gonna wear this
and it’ll be spring in a month anyway
i’m giving this away.
to anyone, in the US,
someone will randomly be picked
from here, or,
from ig, or,
ends COB monday.
just answer this:
what book are you currently reading??
this is the pattern.

COULD POSSIBLY YOU BE CUTER?! ps, your legs look great for Winter Legs. Mine are a little too light. eh!
sophie, you are too sweet, as always.
i have naturally a dark skin tone, this is about as light as i get.
Damn you’re good. Your last photo is epic…if I could crochet that well, I would strike the same pose.
This is my current read:http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15792594-the-one-taste-of-truth
One of my favorite quotes from the book: “When the mind is right, the brush will be also.” Reminds me of your work, because it’s always just right.
bonnie, thank you so much for your support. the book sounds interesting!
The hat is really beautiful. Love the photos. I luckily escaped the US for a bit 🙂 But i’m back in the cold now.
amanda, welcome back to the cold! 🙂
