We forgot about this piece of wisdom when my mum and I went off on holiday to Islay and got a bit taken aback by the force of the fresh air! While it was often sunny and bright, there was a definite wind chill factor going on. So guess what? I had to knit a hat for mum! Not sure how happy she was with the colour scheme but you had to use what was to hand, and it's definitely cheery! Mum knitted the wee flower, and I decided we definitely needed a pair of wrist warmers to finish off the outfit. So there you have it - dead simple and surprisingly warm. I must admit I was glad to borrow it when I went braved the wind and the rain to visit Finlaggan.
