I never thought I'd make myself another but last year's scoodie turned out to be too big for me (I gave it to a friend with dreadlocks and it fits her perfect) and I just wasn't keen on the scarf part either.  But I like the hood, so last night I avoided a bit of work I desperately needed to do and zinged up a little hood with just a neck closure to keep me noggin warm.

Good thing too because today has turned out to be a ratty day and it's six blocks round trip to my monkey's preschool.


I put a point on it b/c I was feeling sorta elfie, but I'm not so much in love with it.  Maybe I could give this one away too and make another...

how it looks without my head in the way:


comments, questions welcome of course.   Tutorial here for the classic scoodie (she says knowing how silly that sounds) if anyone wants.

ooh, good idea. sometimes i'm not in the mood for a scarf but still want the hood. now technically, since there's no scarf, this would be more of a colloodie or neckoodie wouldn't it?  Cheesy

ps. the first photo looks JUST like your monkey. Wink

hmmm.  good thinking.  I think I will go with noodie (neck + hoodie).  Since we are on the topic, my next project is to make a hood with a one piece bit of knit to go over my daughter's shoulders tucked under her shirt.  Some of you may remember this as a dickie.  Hood + dickie = hickie.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

Lovely! I'm anit-scarf most of the time, so I'm all about this... noodie. And especially the hickie. I'm thinking of starting a dickie revolution and this would be a welcome addition to my arsenal. Wink

I think this thing is fantastic! And I think there is nothing wring with calling the original a scoodie classic. I must say I think the infant pants from shirt sleeves is totally inspired and I will be trying it out! Now I just need to hit the thrift stores looking for good shirts to make into pants! My daughter is crawling and you just can't have too many pair.

OH! AND I LOVE THE POINT!!!

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?
