So, I’d be surprised if anyone out there hadn’t realised the weather has taken a turn for the worse. Whilst I’m not lucky enough to be venturing outside to make snowmen, London is experiencing minus temperatures, and I’m feeling it. On Friday PBM and I ventured to his sister’s house to see 1 month old twins.
Whenever we’ve visited this bunch we take the train to Victoria and Victoria Line train to Highbury and Islington, followed by a 15 minute walk North through Highbury Fields to get back to our cosy flat. And this Friday night it was ridiculously cold, what with a bitter northerly wind. I had luckily enough pulled out my super thick thinsulate gloves on Friday morning after experiencing dry, cracked knuckles from my beautiful Lisakingo handwarmers and naturally had my cream beret with me too. However, the beret wasn’t enough to save my ears from the inevitable earache of which they have become accustomed. So it was called for that I need a new hat. A longer, thicker one this time that better covers my ears. However, with a lacking supply of wool for a full hat, and with a dash of inspiration from Lisakingo’s leaf design headband on Saturday at the Dansk KFUK Christmas Market, I pulled out a skein of leftover yarn from my cardi and started on a cabled headband. This was my first attempt at cable and it was surprisingly straightforward. There was no need to fret about overcoming such a hurdle. It was in fact easy peasy. And so here it is – worn on its own and over my beret. I hope you like:
