Once there was a lonely Snoodster, knitting snoods all on her own. Then she blogged about it.
Do you remember the Sensational Snood blog post? There’s no denying it, the Snood Sensation has gone mad. It’s rippled out from London to commuter land, beyond to the Midlands, over to Ireland, and across the Atlantic to America.
It needed a colleague to point this out to me (thanks, Alex!) but a World Map of Snoods was really called for. And here it is! Click the ‘View larger map’ link above and you will see the locations of all the (known) snoods in the (known) universe with an accompanying narrative and blog links from yours truly. Yes, the place markers are miniature balls of pink wool. I can’t tell you how much fun I had compiling this! A lot.
If you want to be added to the map, do let me know. In the meantime, here’s a photographic run down.
We started with one giveaway winner, two knitters and one sewer-with-a-knitting-mum who all wore their new snoods with pride:
Elizabeth decided to make a second snood for her mum:
In the meantime, other readers were catching the snood bug:
Special mention must go to A Sewing Odyssey who may need to think about renaming her blog ‘Epic Knitting’ after all these makes:
And the Snoodster I am particularly pleased to meet is Kelly all the way from Virginia, USA:
Now, you might think we couldn’t possibly do more with snoods. You’d be wrong. In this extra-cold weather we can … double up our snoods!
This is me wearing my teal snood with ANOTHER snood I made last year, following the Carly Makes Stuff crochet snood pattern that you can find here. I used Rowan Big Wool. It’s a gorgeous pattern, as you can see, and will crochet up in an evening or two if you fancy one.
I am so proud of all my Snoodsters, but now I am exhausted. It’s time for a Snood Snooze. ZZZzzzzz….
