The hood is super cute, though the pattern is a little confusing in spots. I feel like mine came out taller than it should have, among other small issues. I love it anyway :)

03.08.11 - I found the most AWESOME buttons. All sewn on and made the cord. My hood rocks!

02.28.11 - Cast off with just enough yarn to weave in the end! Trouble is, now I don’t have enough for the tie, I used more yardage than I should have on the ribbing because I had a hard time picking the stitches up the right way and had to cut/rejoin a few times. 2 skeins would have been perfect. Trying to hunt down some scraps now.

02.27.11 - SIGH! Had to frog about 10 rows of attaching the center; realized I was doing the SSP wrong. If you’ve never done them, watch a video first, it’s a little odd.

02.24.11 - Ok, figured out how to attach the centers; the wording is more verbose than it needs to be. It’s like turning a really big heel.

02.15.11 - I was cruising along pretty well until I got to the part to attach the center to the sides. Now I’m confused!
