Hat. But where’s the scarf? And what about gloves?
So I finished my Blaukäppchen:
I would love to wear it, but I do not own a scarf or gloves/mitts to go with it! The bright-red gloves I knit last year won’t do (despite my Wollmeise-induced liking of bright colors I prefer not to look like a clown when I take my kids to daycare). Well, I could use a black fleece scarf I picked up at a market booth for 2 Euros and wear simple black gloves with it. But that would be boring. On the other hand, a hat, scarf plus mitts of the same color would be equally boring. (Note to self: Need to think more before I knit). However, I think that the bigger danger in being a knitter is to exaggerate with your knitted accessories: The meticulously cabled hat, a beautiful lace stole and some intricate gloves that were so much fun to knit. How do you guys do it? Do you plan complete hat-scarf-glove-combinations when you start knitting? Do you combine knitted and bought stuff? Or do you go completely wild? And, most importantly: What kind of scarf do you think would go well with my Blaukäppchen?
