I'm so on trend it hurtsWednesday, November 20, 2013
Apparently, cosy knitted snoods are so in right now. I don't like to blow my own fashion trumpet, but I was ALL OVER this trend two years ago. Not only did I knit a snood for myself, I also knitted one for Smidgen, because I am a crazy dog lady. I then knitted a second one for myself, in softest pink, but Smidgen ate it. I tried not to take it personally.
Anyway, the fashion world has finally caught up with Smidgen and me, and the internet is rife with snoods. The best thing about the snood trend is that it's a zero effort trend, which is my favourite type of trend. You don't even have to go through the tiresome process of wrapping it around your neck with your arms, ugh, scarves are so exhausting. Snoods are also warm and endlessly practical in these chilly climes, for which the back of my neck is profoundly grateful (#shorthairproblems).
My beloved chunky grey snood is practically glued to my body at the moment, but if I was inclined to purchase a new one to add to my rotation, it might be this colourful number by Donna Wilson.
The big question is, which colour? (And do I need the matching mittens?)
