Man of Many Knits
Early this morning, despite being feverish and having a bad head cold, my overachiever of a husband set out to shovel a light layer of snow from our driveway. (I had to snap a photo of how cute he looked all bundled up in his handknits.) That man sure is prompt when it comes to shoveling. If it were up to me, the job would wait until after I have had my coffee, my breakfast, taken a shower, knit a few rows of whatever project I am working on, started a craft project with the boys and done just about whatever else I could think of. At which point, quite honestly, I am nearly certain that the snow will have already melted off the driveway. Eliminating the need to do any shoveling at all. Brilliant, right?
Although we live in Colorado, we are in the high desert portion of the state. Which means that we get very little snow. The snow that does manage to make its way to our neck of the woods never sticks around long. So, it's kind of a novelty!
The hat is the awesomely fast to knit, Man Hat, by Haven Leavitt...Knit in Spectra, in the colorway, Curry. This hat is a new favorite and will surely be knit up in many more colors, as it's just such a great fitting, warm hat. The broken ribbing makes for a really lofty hat with lots of little air pockets to hold in heat. Kinda like a waffle knit shirt. The scarf is just some crazy acrylic yarn I picked up years ago in the sale bin of a little knitting shop in Salt Lake City, UT.
