Split Stitch Hood

My most recent project is outfitting my lord's squire brother (one tunic just won't do!). Here is the hood I just finished for him.  It is a blue and deep gold linen and is reversible. He wanted an orange, and the linen I bought looked orange until I washed it... It still looks really nice though, so I hope he feels the same!  This is the first hood I have embroidered - I used split stitch done in a bronze colored silk thread, a simple, but pretty detail. Don't tell him I called it pretty, though ;-)
