Well soon I'll be getting ready to move upstate, where the winters can be pretty brutal. Taking this into account I've decided to break out the knitting needles and start making myself some warm winter accessories. I used the pattern Foliage from Knitty.com and made the chunky weight version of the hat using Paton's rumors in Fern Heather. Its a really fuzzy, soft yarn, but it might not have been the best choice of yarn to show off the actual lace pattern. Oh well, anyways, here are some pics.
