A Hood to Match

A gift from Kendell's big heartKendell made another contribution to my wardrobe by crocheting a hood to match the jacket he made for me last year. The winter of 2010-11 has been too warm for me to take personal advantage of this cozy garment, but my carved wood Thai war horse displays it well.

Like the crocheted jacket, the hood is adorned with playful detail, including beaded compositions and whimsical shapes that I didn't know one could make with crochet.

Another perspective Braids and beads

I think "spectacular" describes this unique work of wearable art.
