Because we had a comeback of winter in the last couple of days, I want to share one of my winter knitting projects with you.
Already last winter I made a wonderful hat for myself. It's made out of Álafoss Lopi, which is wool that comes from iclenadic sheep. And what can I say, my other half liked it so much that he wanted one for himself:
The pattern is available via ravelry, and has some really interesting details. I especially like the braided edge of the hat and ear flap:
I added fleece lining to the hat to make it even warmer and more wind proof. Also, it protects from the scratchyness of the wool.
See you soon,
ETA: J pointed out that not only did he ask for the hat, he also suggested a significant improvement: the fleece lining (and as much as it hurts me to confess it: you were right ;-) )
