One nice thing about the cold weather is that it has provided an opportunity to wear some of the heavier handknits I brought with me from New York.
Now if only they would keep my hands warm. I have never found a pair of gloves or mittens warm enough to keep my hands warm. No I take that back there was a pair of neoprene gloves purchased in Italy. Everything else seems to work only if your hands actually start out warm, a minor problem, as my hands are rarely warm.
Anyway, now that the sweaters are down and off the high shelf, it is quite apparent that I could wear a few of them more frequently. Perhaps the lovely black striped boxy turtleneck is not as versatile as the cardigans, but I am sure it could see an outing or two even in a more typical Tennessee winter.
The nicest benefit is having something I actually knit to wear.
