It's a new year, and another (so far, mild) winter in Canada. With the chill comes the usual odd assortment of winter accessories––knit jumbles of hats, scarves, and mittens, all worn haphazardly in the quest for warmth. These days knits tend toward the muted and tasteful, so we're pretty much spared the kind of "whimsical" headgear that used to be made by fondly misguided relatives and friends, such as the one pictured at left, which (to quote one astute commentator) "...really looks like knitting and Mexican wrestling have collided." Via cameron moll.
