As I promised

A finished object. The "Nomad" hat and scarf from Interweave Knits, done in a soft-spun relatively chunky camel and silk blend, used double. That gave me about the right gauge, and a lovely thick fabric that will be so warm that I will probably only ever use it whilst we are on holiday this year, and then never again.

Although having said that, I do have memories deeply engraved of visiting Blakeney Quay one Christmas, and the wind was so sharp and bitter that we only lasted out there for but ten minutes.....so I can dig it out of storage for any winter holiday in years to come.

Taking a photograph of yourself wearing something on the head is quite tricky, hence the expression denoting intense concentration.

There I am - with more than a passing resemblance to my grandmother in this one!

I like it! Can it be worn to cover more of the forehead or does the angle of the wrap need to be different coming out of the hat for that to work? --Syl

I just love your expression! *Such* hard work. But it looks good, and will be flattering even when it's not covering half your face. Please bring tomorrow evening.

I love it! Useful as spy-wear too, you could easily skulk.

And that grandmother thing: I right there with you. How did this happen?
