Petiole is out!  This was my super speedy “it’s cold and I have to wear a coat and I don’t want to wear a coat…so I’ll distract myself with a hat” project.  I’m sure that says something unflattering about my mental faculties, but I like the hat, and I didn’t freeze to death from refusing to wear a coat, so apparently it worked.  The wrist warmers were just a bonus squeezed out of the few yards leftover when the hat was done.

I made both projects (in a size medium) out of one skein of Aslan Trends Bariloche in Tango Reds, though it took almost every inch of it.  While I’m all out of the red (I had to make something that matched my coat after all), I do have a skein of the same yarn in Grape Jam to give away.  If you’d like it to come live with you, leave me a comment.  Tell me what color your favorite winter coat is (or what color coat you’d like to have).  Be sure you use a real email address (I’m the only one who will see it, and I won’t use it for anything other than contacting the winner).  I’ll leave comments open till early Wednesday morning, then randomly select one as the winner.

Stay warm, and Happy New Year!
