Ear-crackling weatherPosted: November 15, 2011
Beautiful clear skies, burnished sunlight, nearly no breeze wafting the baubles…
…but cold enough to render the cartilage of the outer ear feeling as frangible as good pork crackling. Mid November, and time to don a decent ear-covering hat.
Mine is here. The yarn for one half was spun by Erzsebel from fleece (Shetland and Wensleydale) dyed by Pixeldiva. Had I thought about it I should have used a twisted rather than plain rib in the knitting. It’s glorious colours, divinely soft and pleasingly versatile since it’s reversible and can be worn as a cowl round the neck. Best of all it’s got the immeasurable warmth that comes from the twined friendships of its provenance.
