I found this pic on The Graphics Fairy blog http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/2008/02/princess-katherine-of-france.html
She says it is a picture of Katherine the Princess of France, from Shakespeare's Henry V. I can't quite tell what the snood is made of. It looks too shiny to be ribbon. Any ideas? I'd like to try and duplicate it, in a much shorter length to suit my thin, fine hair. lol At any rate, it fueled my obsession with all things headcovering-related.
And since I'm on the headcovering topic, I wanted to share an excellent page about biblical submission. For the record, I am a former career-woman trying to supress my independence in Godly submission to my husband. (He makes it easy! ) :) My friends and family think I'm nuts, but I don't think they really understand what biblical submission IS. Maggie, at Frugal Abundance puts it much better than I do. http://www.frugalabundance.com/biblicalsubmission.htm
Now to dig through my yarn stash so I can start another snood!
