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.
