Husband's grey beanie

Here is the last day of meterological winter. I hope it really will be the last day, although I love this season. It is X-mas time, being at home with a cup of tea time, eating lots of sweets time, wearing knitwear time, and I could say even more beauties of winter. 
Today the winter said goodbye to us with snow, so I say goodbye to winter with my last winter knitting project: a hat for my Darling.
Pin it or add it to your que on Ravelry and return to the project in fall. It is really easy and fast.
