Now I just need to work out an elegant way to combine the two. I've tried a couple of different ways that have been unsatisfactorily lumpy but, admittedly, my research hasn't been exhaustive. I can do this. This should be within even my DIY scope. The good news is that I am already in love with the beanie. I have never really worn beanies before because the standard high street fashion beanie covers approximately 1/8 of my giant head. It turns out though that skaters have enormous heads too/wear their hats much bigger than the average Topshop acolyte. This bad boy actually fits on my head and stays on my head, no need for kirby grips or nuffink. It's like it wants to be there. And it keeps my head so warm and dry in the current abysmal weather... It's dreamy.
R says that it is so nice and I look so good in it that perhaps I shouldn't wear it out of the house. I wouldn't want to damage it after all. Luckily, my snuggly warm ears and I are deaf to his insinuations.
