Wintertime :: dressing warm

The good thing about chilly weather is that you can dress yourself to keep warm, while it’s impossible to undress enough to keep cool during a heatwave.
I took out, washed and sorted all the hats, scarfs and gloves. I like how many stuff is knit by me in that big pile.

In summer the coat rack is usually kind of empty, and we store our bath towels on top of it (to use when we take a swim to battle that heatwave). Now it looks full and cozy.

(Yeah, I know, all fake fur. It seems kind of hard to buy a coat without it.)

Speaking of wearing things I knit myself: I finished the pullover. Sadly it’s a bit to tight. I knew I had to pick a slightly bigger size, but I was afraid I would run out of yarn. So now I have a tight sweater and five balls left. Anyway, I do like it. It is kind of hard to see in the picture, but it is a rather simple v-neck sweater. The only special thing about it are the sleeves, they are knit sideways in k2, p2 ribbing.

(I do not like taking pictures of myself. I do not like any pictures of myself. But it will have to do…)
