That's right, the hood! The stripes ended up evenly, as I did the last stripe of only 4 rows (versus 8) and then did a 3 needle bind off. (Take my word for it, I know it's in the sun.)
There's an i-cord to knit. But after that, comes this dreaded task:
Eight rows of each stripe was just too long to carry the yarns. I plan on hiding the ends (etc. ad nauseum) tonight. If I keep it going tonight then I won't have to do it tomorrow.
Sigh. I'm going to need some chocolate.
