Our friend the “Silver Fox” asked me to make him another face mask. ( I made him and Far Guy each one last year to help warm the air before they breathe it in) He wears it outside and he says his other one gets wet and if he had two one could dry out whilst he is wearing the other…and could I make it grey to match his ski jacket…and longer than the one I made him last year. Sure. I made it and delivered it and he was pleased as punch.
I made myself a helmet scarf with thick ties so it is like a scarf and a hat all in one. Mine is a bit wonky …one tie is longer than the other ( I ran out of yarn)…but I was not going to rip it out and start over. It was admired one day even with it’s flaws.. “ I used to have a scarf/hat like that in middle school sure wish I had it now when it is so cold. Back then I was embarassed to wear it.”
I had time, I had yarn. I had attempted a wide rimmed hat with this yarn once upon a time…and then frogged it. There is no pattern, I made it to fit my head and the scarf to fit over my ears …you can tie it in place, tuck it in your coat or let it flop around.
I had Far Guy take a photo before I delivered it. (She loved it!)
Me and the helmet scarf. Who knows it may become a Minnesnowda fashion statement...or not.
I finished Hey Mikey’s winter hat and got it mailed off to him.
I didn’t take a photo of the finished hat but here it is in progress. It was a real soft fuzzy yarn.
I still have a bag filled with scrubby yarn and I crochet scrubbies when I am in the car or waiting at an appointment.
I am also revisiting knitting. THAT has been a real adventure.
