Last winter my sis knit me a fantastic winter hat with ear flaps and strings with pom-poms at the end, to keep my ears warm in the DC cold. I had to dig it out of winter storage this morning to combat the low temperatures.
I feel I should mention that it's a Kitty Hat. She knit little kitty ears onto it; I adore this hat. But it occurred to me while walking home from work this morning (I'm feeling under the weather) that, in silhouette, this hat makes me look a bit like Batgirl, and I'm fighting the evil villain Windchill. Not to mention my scarf looks a bit like a cape in this shadow-puppet-theater photo.
