Wurm by Katharina Nopp

Yesterday, it was 75 degrees in East Tennessee. And here I thought it was December… Instead of indulging in cozy sweaters, I’ve been reduced to daydreaming of flurries and all the handmade knits I desperately want to wear. Still, in the face of unseasonal weather, I’d like to share one of my favorite knits of all time. *Drumroll* May I present, Wurm by Katharina Nopp.wurm profile

I finished my beloved wurm hat when I was still living in Chicago. Those grad school days were long and stressful, and knitting this quirky hat was a fun way to unwind. In the future, I’d love to experiment with color to play up the shape of the pattern.wurm wurm stand up 1 wurm rolls

We’ve had lots of adventures together, most notably Snowpocalyse 2011. You might know this epic blizzard by another name, such as Snowmaggedon, Snowzilla, or, my personal favorite, snOMG. I think you get the point – there was a lot of snow.

The day after the storm had passed, I took the opportunity to run out onto frozen Lake Michigan. As the sun set over my beautiful, snowed-in city, I stole a great photo of the skyline from atop a frozen wave. In the other direction, it was iced-over lake as far as the eye could seechicago skyline snowpocalypse lake michigan snowpocalypse
