It was so comfortable! I took my hair down and tried the snood again (which is Snood Test #2 when I'm sewing). It stayed in place. I decided to wear it to bed to see how it did and it actually stayed on my head, comfortably until early morning, which was great because I don't like sleeping with my hair up, but I also don't like it down where Mae can reach it and grab it when I get up to feed her.
Then I wore it to Mass today... and kept it on all day (it's still on!). I will definitely be making velvet snoods in the dozen or so other colors of velvet that I purchased last week! This color is already up on my site. I'll keep adding more as I make them!
I love how it stretches to fit my hair when it's in a bun, a pony tail, or down.
Can you see where I broke my nose (twice) playing rugby in the picture below? That's what stands out to me when I look at this one!
