What's a Snood?

A free pattern from Erika Knight.
Summer Breeze A pretty and drapey snood knitted in four different lace patterns. 
materials yarn: erika knight studio linen 85% recycled linen/15% premium linen approx. 120m/131yds – 50g/13⁄4oz hank  
quantity: 2 hanks  
3.75mm/US 5 circular needle 100cm/40in long large eyed blunt tipped sewing needle  
extra knitting needle for three needle cast/bind off
Studio Linen is a very nice yarn to work with and it blocks beautifully.

You might be asking - what is a snood? It's a term my mom liked to use and we kept telling her that we don't use that term - call it a cowl. And now Erika uses it in her description :)

I've been working on the madelinetosh section of the website so we're ready when the shipment arrives on Tuesday.
The new colours coming in tosh merino light look amazing.

I brought Fading Point to work with the intention of getting pictures outside. I didn't make it out there before the rain started so here is an inside picture.
I'm about to start the garter section on colour 3. I need to get moving on this. Something tells me that I might be casting on a Comfort Fade Cardi Tuesday evening.
There was a surprise waiting for me when I got to work this morning. Everybody who came in the store commented on how beautiful and big it is.
