Winter's Last Hurrah

We've all had our fun complaining about the long snowy winter--but now that everything is melting, I feel a little sad.  I think a lot of knitters feel that way.  It's the opposite of that rush we get when we catch that first cold breeze in late September.

But it's not totally over yet.  We still have a little spring skiing planned in two weeks, and in spite of the fact that the thermometer may hit 60 this weekend, there is still snow on the ground.  There is still time to crank out a few accessories like this cutie from Kirsten Kapur.  I was looking for a classic cabled hat and this fit the bill perfectly.  Soon I'll be knitting in bright spring colors, but here's a little more winter white to ease us into it.  Pom-pom yet to be added.
