WIW: thanks to E.

Look what E. sent me!! Isn't she the best? 

It's a handknitted beanie! It looks great with my dark grey puffer coat. Also works with my red wool coat. 

Do you think it is okay with my new coat as well? (Pictured here).

    Looks great with your new coat x

  • greycat6 replied 5 years ago

    The gray color brings out the blue in your eyes!  Looks toasty warm!  What a thoughtful gift!

  • texstyle replied 5 years ago

    I love that color gray/blue with your eyes! Very nice gift of E.

  • Inge replied 5 years ago

    It is perfect with your new coat, and you wear beanies so well. How sweet of E!

  • replied 5 years ago

    Yes, it's great! I love how you pulled a bit of your bangs out of the hat to frame your face. Nice work, E, and how sweet of you!

  • Elly replied 5 years ago

    It goes with your eyes! How sweet of E! I think it looks fine with the new coat, but I picture a contrasting or navy hat with that coat and dark (black) gloves. 

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    What a nice gift! It looks great on you and with the coat.

  • Alassë replied 5 years ago

    E, you're too sweet!

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    Thanks, all, and thanks especially to Eva. It is a beauty and so cozy! 

    I think you might be right, Elly -- maybe a navy hat or charcoal for this coat. I might just have to commission one!! :) 

    But I wore this really happily today; it is just the right slate grey to work with my eyes. I once had a blouse in this colour and have been looking for similar for years. It was so flattering.

    The hat looks really good on you and with your coat! Go E!

    I love it with the new coat.  It looks great on you Suz.

  • carter replied 5 years ago

    Cute! And so sweet of E! I so want to learn how to knit! Back in the day, I could needlepoint the heck out of a pillow, but seriously, how many stiff pillows do you need? Cute hats, sweaters, scarves on the other hand...

  • Staysfit replied 5 years ago

    That's so nice!  I think it's perfect for all you coats.  What a thoughtful gift from E.

  • Karie replied 5 years ago

    How sweet of E to do that! It is a gorgeous hat.

  • Aubergine replied 5 years ago

    That totally makes me smile! Love the color too! So subtle and beautiful.

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    What a great color on you and the hand knit makes it extra special. You look cute and cozy.

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    What a perfect fit!  The beanie works beautifully with this coat, too, and would look lovely with bundled sweaters or active jackets, as well.

    What a thoughtful gift from E!

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    What a sweetheart heart E is and, of course, it works and will be stylish and warm with both coats.  Glad you're feeling better.
