Pewter Snood

This amazing Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 8-ply was originally intended for Mel Clark’s Diagonal Ribbed Cowl. My mom requested a chunky snood for her birthday and I thought the combination of super soft cashmere and simple design would be just the ticket. After some hemming and hawing over modifications to the cowl pattern I decided to design a new snood especially for my mom. I’m knitting up a version that is chunkier still and will share the pattern once it’s ready to go. I love this yarn but the price is in line with its luxurious qualities! The new version will be less heart attack-inducing in terms of material costs. I had originally thought that the three skeins I picked up from Rose Haven Farm Store would be enough but ended up needing to pick up two more that I found at Lettuce Knit. Lucky or unlucky!

    Don’t you think this colour would like nice on me?! Hmmmmm…..

    Love it – beautiful work Laura.

    P.S. And just about the prettiest photo of you too – all demure and flushed like a Jane Austen heroine.

  3. Christopher Says:

    Any photo where Laura is looking demure is clearly a trap!

    Wow – gorgeous snood and gorgeous photos. I know what you mean about heart attack-inducing yarn investments. Your mom will definitely appreciate it, especially since it’s your own design. Wonderful!
