Burning the Midnight Oil

I am up late tonight with {s} again...she has a cold and was up a lot last night too. She isn't very sick but stuffy nose + thumbsucker = no sleep because the thumbsucker has to breathe out of her mouth, therefore not being able to suck her thumb. Good news is I am able to post the pictures of my hybrid...

this is the top of the hood~again, it was knit flat so these cables were on opposite sides then I grafted the top edge together making the cable look like it was somewhat continuous (red writing on picture says 'edge of hood towards face'). 
and here is the side. I hope the scarf is long enough...it comes to about mid thigh on me but my sil is tall so it is likely to hit her boob.
from the back...don't ask about {l}'s modeling~I know not where she gets it. I don't like how pointy the edge is (smooshed it down in the pic), but I knew that would happen because of how I was making it...when I have more time I might have to play with that. 
a view from the front. 
It isn't as floppy as the one my sil showed me which I think is due to the seed stitch edging and doubling the yarn. It also fits closer to the face which I (and Tug) think makes it look a little more Mideastish but whatev.
Hope you like it Michelle~Merry Christmas~I will mail it, eventually. 

4 people are laughing with me:

I mean - how fast do you knit [or crochet... whatever]!?? "Sew like the wind"

Hmmm, that scarf looks oddly familiar- I have a brown one exactly like it, Michelle even took pics of it a while back. Conspiracy going on here????
