So I made myself a striped scarf in the round and then learned what a tuque was when i wore it as a hat and a scarf and my ma clarified haha. I like it :D (sorry my photos aren't that great.. my camera doesn't work that great on my phone and im a naturally shaky person heh)

very nice! Looks like a keeper. And thanks for telling me about the Tuque. I did not know that term.
I like this idea better than the hooded scarfs I have seen.

you really look cute in it.
By the way: those cameras all work better with more light. Indoor light conditions at night are not ideal. You can tell when taking a photo by daylight how much better that will be. But these pics sure do the trick to show.

That's really cute! It looks great on you. Do you live somewhere cold? That hat/scarf combo is a good idea. :thumbsup:

Tuque/toque/hat... same thing known by various names in different parts of the world. Generally here in the US they are known as hats and I've heard Canadians say toque/tuque. I could be wrong, but that's my understanding.

hyper-- yeah my camera does work much better during the day but i was too excited to not take pics :D

jan- yeah i live in colorado and it's finally getting cold enough that scarves and/or hats are much needed when outside, plus im a smoker so i use it constantly haha. and yeah, my grandma is Finnish and moved from Finland to Canada and that's why I was calling it a tuque.. its supposed to taper and close off on one end but i didnt plan it to work this way, just like that it is :D haha

and thank you for the compliments :)

Nice! I guess you're not Canadian, or you'd know from babyhood what a 'tuque' is. We all have at least one, heh.

Is this one of the ones where part of it is stuffed up inside to make a doubled hat? I like it a lot. Nice colors too. Looks good on your. :thumbsup:
