dressing warm

October 21, 2008

I’ve spent the last few days wondering how many woolies are too many woolies.  It finally turned cold (by NC standards, anyway, still no frost) and I am trying to make the most of all my knitted items…without looking like a ragamuffin.  Fingerless mitts, scarf, hat, socks.  Sometimes I look like a ragamuffin and just don’t mind.

But my Maggie, she’s no ragamuffin.

She looked perfectly coordinated yesterday when we went on a “bear hunt” for the cat, who lives outdoors.

We never did find Cat Minnie but we had a good, warm adventure.  Fortunately, you won’t be subjected to pictures of what I was wearing.  It really has me thinking that perhaps I should plan to knit a coordinating hat/mitten combo.  I could at least try to be coordinated.

Then, as usual,  we ended our adventure on the tire swing.

    Oh, that last picture is the tops. And also, too many woolies? There is not such thing.

    Heh. Maggie looks *fantastic* in her lovely woolies, but I do identify with the adult ragamuffin issue . . My bloke refers to this look as ‘woolled up’. It is a look I like.

    i have no idea what a ragamuffin is???? but i love when people even adults wear a whole lot of woolies together. personally i am wearing my different poroms and my st. brigid together all the time and i think i look cosy and friendly ;-))
    and of course maggie looks as cute as ever. it is great when children wear a lot of woolies especially. your little one is adorable and i almost feel like i know her..

    What a cutiebug! Love it when everything still fits, a year later (although then I usually feel guilty for that, bc OF COURSE I want my kids to grow! LOL).
