Stopping the cold

This year the cold weather has started bothering Q's asthma. While trying to figure out an easy way for him to cover his mouth, I decided to try and knit him a hat that could cover everything but his eyes. I also decided this would be my first top-down hat.
3 days, some Plymouth Encore yarn, and many try-ons left Q looking like this before school today:

See that twinkle in his eyes? He came home to report that he had never been warmer and that some of his classmates loved his hat and were amazed that his mom knit it. Compliments from 3rd graders? How much better can it get?

Yea! That is too cool. I really needed one of those last night after my class - I thought my face would freeze and fall off! BRRR

Stay warm, and a very happy Thanksgiving to you and the family ;)
