The Librarian

Amazing how inspiring another bout of cold weather can be

In this case it means I have a Peaks Island Hood to wear to work tomorrow because I finally sewed the buttons on it tonight. (note that I finished knitting the thing LAST February ... by which I mean February 2012 ... and since then it's waited all this time for me to get 'round to attaching a mere three buttons ... yes, I really like the knitting part of knitting but for some reason am less enthused about the bits that don't involve using pointy sticks in pairs).

This hood is an amazing piece of fibre engineering; those buttons are what magically turns what looks like a scarf with an odd bulge near one end into this! :-)
