Denim and Lace Rag Quilt

Recently my daughter’s room got a makeover.  A fresh coat of paint, new bedding, window treatments and a few new decor items.  The rugged denim paired with the softer lace matches her personality to a tee.  She prefers to wear jeans and boots whenever possible, but still has a soft feminine side.

The first major project for her room was this rag quilt.

Snood, Take 2

In April, I showed you the Snood I made for my niece. (See the post here).

While visiting her this summer, she requested I make her another one.

Purple Snood

I used the same Snowflake Pattern, but this time I made the small snood. I believe it fits much better. I used Caron Simply Soft Party yarn in Purple Sparkle from my stash.

She loves it and wears it to ice skating lessons.

What’s a snood?

Well spring break is over, so back to the blog world. The other day, my sister emailed me a picture of this white circle thing she had bought, but it was too small, asking could I knit one for her. My first question is “What is it?”

Long story short, my niece needs a bun cover to wear ice-skating. My sister had purchased one from Target, but it was too small. While looking for a knitting pattern I learned that the technical name for a bun cover is a snood. Webster defines it as “a net or fabric bag pinned or tied on at the back of a woman’s head for holding the hair”.

I found a free pattern for a snowflake snood here. My niece thought it was a flower pattern. But whatever you call it, it worked great and she loved it.

I used “Jamie” yarn by Lion Brand Yarns in Angel White. I used less than 35 yards of yarn to knit a medium size snood.
