Necessity is the mother of invention

by Jen of Blue Alvarez Designs

I am currently car-less by choice (like childless by choice, but less controversial-sounding), and as such, need some serious cold weather gear to help me in my efforts to stay mobile on two wheels through the New England winter.

So today I finished knitting this:

While it will no doubt keep my head very warm (it is soy silk and cotton plaited together at a chunky gauge), it also made me think immediately of two things:

1. The Sublime.

2. The Ridiculous.

And of the two, really the ridiculous came to mind first.

Do with that what you will. It's a fine line between utter geek and fashion plate, and as Johnny Cash said, I walk the line.

  1. Hey, anything to stay warm. I once wore flip flops to a show on a cold, rainy day and ended up wrapping my feet in paper towels. Paper towels and flip flops - not sublime!
