The Little Ice Age, from the 16th to the 19th centuries, wasn’t cold enough to be a true ice age but I bet that was little comfort to the people living in it! The last few winters have seemed particularly harsh and once the novelty of the first snow has worn off, the cold seems to last forever. What I love about cold weather is wearing hand knits, as many as is humanly possible but most of all I love wearing hand knit socks. These socks have colourwork and cables and are perfect to wear while you are snuggled up in front of the fire!
