Knitted hat

Mr. PeasantHouse in his red hat, and wearing "five sweaters" covered with snow after he shoveled half of the driveway...not to be mistaken for a Scandinavian ancestor...sorry about the blurr.

These are the mailman's footsteps...

 Close up of the new hat for Mr. PeasantHouse.  He did not want to be the gnomish neighbour, so he asked for another color hat, this one is a bluish grey.

After knitting a cuff in 1x1 rib I knitted 3 rows in stokinette so it would turn up on itself.
 I had to tack the top to the back seam in a Phrygian Cap fashion.  It looks very know the French Revolution logo...

 It looks like an owl to me.

New pair of sock for Mr. PeasantHouse.  I went to Hobby Lobby last week, before the blizzard and in preparation for the snow event and bought this sock yarn.  It is their own brand.  It is very nice with a good twist, which makes the socks more durable.
 Close up so you can see the tiny gauge.  7.5 stitches to the inch on #2 DP needles.  They will be warm!
The gray knit is my triangle shawl knitted on #8 needles in garter stitch.
I'll leave you with this:

"Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established."  Proverbs 16:3

In His hands,  ^__^
