This year, Wally and I got new hats and mittens.
This yarn, Mirasol, is my new favorite. Wally picked his out at a yarn store in Phoenix when we were there in March, and asked for a hat (and then, later, for matching mittens, necessitating my finding people on Ravelry with some to sell). I think I picked mine out at the same time, actually, and later I bought a bit more in Decorah to make socks for a friend’s husband.
I’m also knitting myself a hood, which will enable me to keep my noggin warm, but still wear a headcovering. I will probably end up lining both my hat and my hood with microfleece, like Wally’s hat is.
