Now that it’s 50 degrees outside here in Chicago, I have an Artic Ready Hat! Not to worry, we all know another BLAST is in the wings and this little number just might pull me through.

Back in the early days, I made a Snood to battle the great outChores while shoveling snow. The mistake was combining a strand of mohair with a strand of worsted – looked good, tasted BAD. Those little bits of hair kept finding their way into my mouth whenever I took a breath. Blahchk…

This time, we have semi-coverage without the beard – or the pompom!

Instead, we have a little Icord clover – I doubled the yarn like on the bottom of the hat and made about a foot of cord then twisted it and sewed it to the top of the hat. I’m thinking it’s a cowlick of sorts, which in my family is fondly referred to as a KookadeeKoo! One of the ladies at the salon where I get my hair cut is from the Ukraine – and she says that’s a Real Word! Anybody know how it’s spelled?

…a special THANK YOU to Meg from Inch-by-Inch


for the wonderful hand spun yarn!
I think I’m hooked forevermore!
