Anne of Green Cables

Okay, so there's not really an Anne featured in this post. But there are green cables, oh yes! The hoodie scarf started like this, but I made a few modifications, as usual. I eliminated the visor, added a ribbed edge at the nape, and decreased the cables into a point. Thanks to Ginger for suggesting the tassles. I think I did some other stuff differently, too, but I can't remember (I was working on this during the Philly trip). Then I made some matching mittens, trying them on and winging it as I went. When I was done I realized the right one has a stumpy thumb... just like mine, courtesy of a run-in with the door of a '71 Plymouth Fury. That's what you call personalized!
