Through the Woods

One day my mom texted me, and then called--somewhat frantic, as she was out running her morning route along the river--and asked me if I could look something up.  She wanted to know if I would make her "the hood of her dreams."

And you guys, when your mama calls and asks you to make something that is that important to her, you just do it.  Consider that your life lesson for the day.

She sent me a package of some really soft, laceweight mink, which I paired with some Cascade Eco Wool.  I held them "double" and it came out somewhat mottled, in a pretty pattern.  While visiting Jes at his office one day, I stopped into So Much Yarn and pored through all their pretty buttons, ultimately deciding on the pewter flowers (and maybe some extras, you know, just in case...)

Unlike my usual style, I actually only spent about two months on this.  I didn't waffle between projects, and only worked on this (well, except for a small pair of fingerless mitts for an upcoming swap...)  I sent it to her last week and she has informed me that it is perfect.  So yay!  Just in time for Mother's Day, too!

In case anyone was wondering, I am the favorite daughter.

For this week.  HAHA!

Ravelry notes.
