This week has been the coldest (or certainly feels the coldest) so far this winter. The puppy is sleeping on one couch. The husband is sleeping on another. I started off trying to make good on some resolutions that may or may not be related to a new year starting fairly recently, and ending up working on a hat. I started knitting a Thorpe, adjusted for my gauge, and am completely changing to ribbing rather than ear flaps at the bottom. This is the sort of hat, of chunky wool and alpaca, that I wish I’d started a week ago – since I would have had it for this past week of wind and so-cold-my-sinuses-ache weather. I’m currently debating with myself over the best stretchy bind-off once I finish, but will be happy if I get to wear it for dog-walking purposes tomorrow!
