Minus one degree was the temperature when I left home yesterday morning. The sun shone above heavy frost.
I was bundled up with coat, scarf, hat, gloves, and boots, but my fingers and cheeks were still cold. My fine leather gloves are insufficient for this level of cold, and I need to find some warmer ones. It occurred to me that I’d be better off wearing a balaclava, but I don’t fancy the army surplus stores type, neither do I want to look like Pussy Riot:
If I want a pink or purple balaclava I think I’d have to knit it, and by the time I’d finished it would probably be summer. I guess I’ll just stick to the warm scarf and beanie.
“A balaclava might be good
or would it be misunderstood?”
