That looks great! I am glad you put it on because I had no idea what it was in that first pic! :roflhard:

That looks really warm! I need something like that when I am out playing in the snow with my kids. My nose always turns bright red from the cold (earning me the nickname "rudolph" when I was a kid), I bet it would be nice and toasty in something like that!
It looks really great.

Thanks gals.
I put it to the test by helping my husband clean up the 5" of snow we got this morning. It works great. :)

I just used some Caron Simply Soft Holiday yarn I had on hand. It is soft but it spilts.

I plan on making it again with wool next time. :)

That looks great! It is the first FO of this pattern that I have seen and I love it! This pattern is on my long list of stuff to do. I'd like to make it out of some superwash wool, but haven't decided which one yet. Where did you get stuck in the pattern?

It was fun to knit up.
You can read about where I got stuck here:

I ended up picking the stitch marker where the instructions said in the middle.
Have fun,
Susie

Wow...what a nice surprise to go here and find your new work! That is beautiful! Is it needed with all the snow now?

Great job! I bet it's coming in useful, with the chilly weather lately in NY.

Thanks gals. :)
It is surely something I'm going to knit again.
It has been really cold here the last few weeks with -30 wind chills. It just started to warm a little yesterday.
We haven't gotten the snow like they have a few hours south. We have gotten about a foot and they have gotten somewhere around 9 to 10 feet and it is STILL coming down.

Julie,
It wouldn't surprise me if you DID need one. :)
We are going to go WAY below zero tonight. BRRRRRRRRRRR!
Thanks for liking it,
Susie :hug:

I like it!

I thought it looked a bit funny, but it looked right once I saw it modelled! :D

Roberta,
:) Glad you liked it after you saw it modeled.
It sure is warm. Maybe I'll wear it to bed tonight seeing it is going to be WAY below zero.

How perfect, now I know I have to make one, I've been shoveling for a week now with our 8-10 feet of snow! :passedout: My BF could use one of these too as he works in the tree service in a bucket 70 feet off the ground all day, I'll have to modify for him since he chews and I don't think he'd like it covering his mouth!!! Stay warm tonight! We are headed for a Nor'easter before the end of the week, you'll need it then!

Theresa,
The mask pulls down easy enough to spit. :)
WOW, you sure did get some snow. We are due for some tomorrow night. I think between 6 to 12 inches.
Suppose to be -17 tonight.
Stay warm and knit,
Susie

Oh I love it! When I saw that in Knitty, I thought it was such a cute pattern, and one I'd like to make some day. Your pics have made me want to make one even more. It's so cute! Great job.
