Little Gold Riding Hood

One fine day back in February, I spontaneously cast on this lovely little hood. (It was one of those 2:30 pm urges at the shop to start something new that I just couldn't fight).

I finished the knitting of the hood in record time. Liiiike... pretty much by the time I went to bed.


But then it lay on my living room floor up until this past Monday (thank heavens I live with the type of person who likely wouldn't even notice if I brought home a flock of sheep). After having little success with sewing up my green sweater, this golden hood caught my eye. So I picked up all those stitches and got 'er done.

I'd say it's the perfect little number for when you don't want to flatten your hair (although I must confess to not having much hair these days-CHOP!), don't want to deal with a giant scarf choking you (although admittedly, that's never been a problem for me) or just want... a hoodie without a body (this isn't the kind of hoodie you can wear without a bra however).

Well, if you didn't think you needed a hood before- you will now!

Project info for my pretties.
Pattern- Mondo Cabled Hood by Bonne Marie Burns over at Chic Knits (we have patterns for sale at the shop if interested)
Yarn- 2 skeins of Cascade 220 Heathers
Needles- 5mm for the hood, 4 mm for the ribbing
Pompoms- I learned my lesson last time. Thank you Clover for making this bitsy 'machine'.

And just because I've had this insanely gorgeous Stargazer Lily next to my bed for the past few days now... I just had to share it with someone I love.


(I so wish my blog was scratch and sniff.)
