Latest headwrap is this pattern.  Took a couple hours to knit, even though I used the abominable Lion Brand Homespun.  Shuts with a vintage brass button.  I do like the variant colors in the yarn.  Will take a better pic tomorrow.

First day done! Note to self: make a running playlist so that you don’t randomly go from “Boom, Clap” to “Velichit dusha moya Gospoda” because the Rachmaninov Vespers are literally my favorite but they don’t work well for running. Also, wear a frickin’ earband because it is colder than you thought.
