Tiddly Om Pom Pom

The snowfall left me itching to crochet a new hat.
I found this ear flap hat pattern on Ravelry - courtest of Knittwittz
It didn't take long to make up as I used chunky wool and a 5mm hook. I added a pom-pom to my attempt - haven't made one since I was a kid!
Wool plait tassels added the finishing touch

The White Stuff

We've had a day of falling snow (and a cosy day working from home), so a chance to wrap up and take some photos

Early this morning, a photo taken from my window, overlooking the field
I tweeted this to my local newspaper and it made it onto their website
The birds were very active in the garden
As the afternoon arrived, so did the sledgers on the hill
The lane at the back of our house looked magical
No work tomorrow, so us 'big kids' are planning to get out there with our sledge!
