Well we have a huge advantage over most consumers, WE KNIT!!! Yeah!
Here's what I've been knitting in the hat and cowl departments:
Above, a long Gaptastic cowl in mustard (with a matching machine knit hat) , a short cowl in turquoise, a crochet cowl in rust and a crochet hat/scarf in lovely buttery soft alpaca.
As you can see below, I also knit two snappy-hats! I love this pattern, it's fast and easy to knit and it looks good on everyone!
I'm knitting another cowl and hat for spring! Can't stop!!! :-)
