charlie brown hat

charlie brown hat, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Another fairly quick knit. Started Tuesday, finished last night. Knit in part in the very early morning yesterday while waiting for my ridiculously early flight home. Flying at 6am is cheaper... but getting up at 3:00 for the shuttle van is horrendous. But thank goodness my flight was yesterday 'cause today is what the news people are cutely calling "Snowmageddon". That's right. It's like Armageddon but instead of the fires of hell we're getting a repeat of the ice-age:

Yes, that's a house in the background. And yes, there is a street in between. No, it has not been plowed yet. They canceled school today, which around here is a huge deal. And the sky is only that grey because of the ridiculous amount of snow falling from the it.

So the hat will probably be much needed and much appreciated for a boy from Paris who probably hasn't seen this much snow, potentially ever. I like the colours - reminds me of charlie brown. :)
