little grey riding hood

 Coat&Dress - 2nd hand
Hooded scarf - Self-made
Cardigan - Made by my grandma
Shoes - H&M
Gloves - Accessorize

If you've seen my Project 365 photos, you've already seen some pictures of this scarf in progress. But now it's ready and here's a few pictures of it! The scarf actually had instructions for fringes at the end, but I ran out of this yarn and think it's discontinued. A fringe doesn't feel completely necessary to me anyway, but if I ever see this or a similar yarn somewhere I might make a purchase and add the fringe. Something I feel like I could have done differently is to have kept in mind that I have a small head and make the hood a tiny bit smaller. Now it's a bit bigger on me, but that means I can wrap into it more and warmer. My current everyday coat (not worn here) has a hood, so I'm not wearing this scarf as much because wearing two hoods would be silly. But I can see this being a good transitional piece when it gets a bit warmer in the spring. Thinking about pairing it with a leather jacket!

In addition to things I've knitted myself, I'm wearing this cardigan that used to be my grandma's and that she made herself. It's one of my favourites and one of the warmest things I own. I was going to say it's cool to have the same hobbies as my grandma, but actually knitting and making things definitely were more of a practicality and necessity for someone like her whereas it's just something fun and a choice for me. But here I am wearing me and grandma's efforts in knitting.

Also, featuring in these photos is the 2nd hand dress that I took in earlier this year and it now fits better (I think it's originally from H&M, but not sure), lipstick on my teeth in basically every photo (unfortunate, but couldn't be bothered to try and retake all of these), some really nice lighting and the start of a slight snowfall.
