Over the river and…

Through the Woods

Through the Woods

Another knit sliding off of my needles!

Actually, this particular knit has been off of my needles for some time, but being that it is a birthday present for my mother-in-law, and I didn’t need it until today, I dragged my heels when it came to adding the buttons. I dragged them for a good month, and only sewed the little buggers onto the hood two days ago.

So, I have been finding the whole premise of this garment a bit odd, I will admit. I’ve referred to it as the disembodied hood many times, as it just seems like it should have a cardigan or a jacket to go with it.

I have to admit, though, that I came around once I tried it on. It’s really quite warm, with the bottom part keeping you all toasty in a scarf-like capacity, and the top part preserving the warmth of your head… I actually kind of like this thing.

The best part? Not counting the aforementioned button-related heel-dragging, I knit this up in a little more than a weekend! Yes, it was a very knit-focused weekend, but still. It was much quicker than it looks. And I loved doing the cables. I’m a fan.

  1. Oh that looks so lovely and cozy! Your mother-in-law is very lucky!

  2. It’s terrific! And cream is always a great color for anything knitted or crocheted. She’ll love it.

  3. Really pretty! I have been considering knitting one. It would be nice for cold days of driveway shoveling!

  4. […] The one I made before was a natural wool color and practically flew off of my needles in the matter of a weekend. This one is black and is taking me a lot longer. Partially that is because it’s much harder to see the stitches in black wool and poor lighting, and I spend a lot of time squinting at it to make sure I’m doing the right thing. But mostly it’s because I’ve taken a lot of breaks. And I do mean a lot. […]
