An update from the land of ice and snow

As winter keeps on hitting us with her best shot, I find myself gathering strength from the idea of that at least I don’t live on an ACTUAL ice planet. As much as it might feel like Niflhelm out there, an end IS in sight I swear. Thankfully, one of my favourite activities pairs excellently with the urge hibernate with Netflix and I have been knitting up a storm as the white stuff continues to fall.

Inspired by these super sweet toques made by Tuck Shop Trading Co, this past weekend I decided to design my own hat for the borough that I live in, the ice planet Hoth.

After playing around in an ancient version Excel for a bit (and catching up on several seasons of The Walking Dead) here is the final result.
