Tasmanian toasty snood~

okay...now,what is a snood? snood (snd)
n.
1. A small netlike cap worn by women to keep the hair in place.
2. A headband or fillet.
3. A fleshy wrinkled fold of skin that hangs down over a turkey's beak.
tr.v. snood·ed, snood·ing, snoods
To hold (the hair) in place with a snood.
hmmmm. looks like a cowl... but I begged off cowl's last winter... it's that whole , pulling it over the head,messing up your hair thing... but Michele... so beautiful,kind and generous... gifted me this wonderful alpaca... straight from the alpaca's in Tasmania... and I wanted to use it close to my body, to feel the warmth and softness. tried several patterns... and not really happy with any, started this snood... from Rowan Winter Gifts... and came to love it... problem is... it's not a net for my hair, it's not a headband, and oooooh... I hope it's not that fleshy turkey thing... don't tell anyone... we'll just call it a cowl for now.... and seriously...how could I not share this...?

It looks beautiful on you. It's so soft and pretty; how can you not love THIS cowl? Nice.

I had to laugh when I read snood -- we use snoods to keep show dogs long ear hair out of their food bowl when they're eating.

Your alpaca cowl is lovely! :)

just so beautiful.
I hope it's warmth will be a little reminder of my love for you xx
Mmmm alpaca.... so soft and this is so lovely. The wee peek of you is lovely too!

I laughed, like Renee has posted, when I read snood because I used to use one on my bloodhound's ears when she ate. Poor thing couldn't see a thing with those ears... if only it were as lovely as this.
Good grief TI about died when I read #3...that is hillarious...hey there is nothing like wearing something "fleshy" around your neck...ugh.

I bet it is so soft...and I like that it is so practical.Looks great!...and I like the little glimpses of you.

skaal, skaal!

You make a snood look so chic! Whatever way you wear it, it looks so good and I bet its very warm too.

I can just feel the softness of that alpaca coming through the photos! No matter what you choose to call it (and I have to admit that's the first I've heard of a snood!), it's beautiful!
What's in a name! I love it ~ whatever it's called ~ I've never knit a cowl and hope to remedy that soon, now that I see how appealing yours is :)

Why am I not surprised that's a California wine ~ enjoy ;)

I hopped over here from Frances' blog. Cowl? Snood. Flashy turkey thing? A wattle? Whatever it is it looks deliciously cosy and gorgeous. I've been enjoying all your photos but oh, that bag in your giveaway. THAT BAG! Do you sell them? Do you take commissions? Alternatively would you be up for a swap for some jewellery?
Eliza said…
I wonder how you snood something? How does it work as a verb?
Looks great. I'd call it a cowl too.
Oh I just love this colour on you. I recently stood at an Alpaca stand at the IKnit London show for ages, just amazed at the beautiful ohsosoft yarn. I wish I'd bough some, oh I wish xxxx
