I thought they might be useful for fiddling about with seeds (don't have any sort of screens)...but I dunno, it felt like my vest was untucked or something. I almost prefer all over cold rather than sneaky draughts or freezy fingertips or ears.I absolutely cannot see the point of a beret either (warming the bits of my head which already has hair)...although I have a giant one which I pull down to chin length - true, it has all the elegance of a plastic bag on my head but....warm ears. In the interests of warmer necks, I have raced straight onto MY cowl although I have done grand-daughter's hat. I have gone a bit mad with Vikkel braids (or Latvian braids) after 50 years of stolid knit and purl, dutiful offspring knitting. When I did garden design, 'Less is more' was often on my lips - advice I have never even considered for myself...cramming in a huge mish-mash of random stuff. Knitting obviously going in the same direction.
