Headgear

For reasons I cannot fathom, J. strenuously objects to my yeti hat (which I wore this evening, being unable to remember where I stored my more traditional black toque.)  However, today she sent me this, suggesting (I assume) that we buy/make/commission one or more of these frightening head garments:

No doubt they are quite warm.  The book seems to be out of print, but I will discuss with my friends who knit things whether they can fashion something similar.

    Not to degress from those fabulous head warmers…do you actually wear full headgear like that around the house. I can certainly see how it would help when you are sleeping and don’t want to burrow under the quits like a gerbil.

    However, I found an insanely efficient way of staying somewhat toasty on those nights you may want to watch TV. We found that the flat screen TV’s throw off a goodly amount of heat. I was really somewhat taken aback…and the larger the flat screen the more heat it emits. I was quite surprised.

    Nothing as extreme as those hats– usually just a plain watchcap for me (or the yeti hat).

    “We found that the flat screen TV’s throw off a goodly amount of heat.”
    Hmm– you must have a bigger one than we do! Or maybe plasma screens use more juice. But my 21″ LCD only draws 45 watts. That’s not going to provide a whole lot of heat, unless I sit directly on it. But, the stereo amplifier puts out up to 100W, so if I’m listening to AC/DC really loud, that adds up…

    We have a 55 inch flat screen…wowser! It’s almost like a heat dish. 🙂
