Why have I never heard the term "snood"?

I must have been living under a rock, because the term actually dates back to 725 or so.  Who knew?  Well, a friend recently asked me if I could make her one.  She shot me a pic and I was like "well sure I can make that!"  I checked out some Esty stores and they are really quite the rage.

Now, the snood has evolved over the centuries and it hasn't always been cute.  Dowdy might be a good descriptor.  But today's version is darn sassy.  It's basically a tubular cowl-style scarf that can also act as a hood.  Kind of "Riding Hood-Chic", if you will.

Check out these two versions that I did for my friend.  One for her and one as a gift for her to give.  She gave me creative liscense with color - just specified cool colors - which work great with her stunning blue eyes. 

The blue/green one is a soft, lighter yarn weight and drapes quite nicely.

The pink/purple is a chunkier yarn and has a more substantial drape.

If you haven't already seen these around, I'm sure you will start to notice them.  Because what girl doesn't love a multi-purpose accessory?

By the way, the model above is not my friend ; )

Until next time!
