So yesterday I really didn't feel like working on anything that I had already on the go and I had the urge to make a headband. I like to wear headbands but don't have many any more as they weren't something I collected as an adult.
SO I got out my knitting needles but then I ran into a problem. The only patterns I liked seemed to use a worsted/bulky yarn to make them go quicker. I didn't have any of that. I only have a lot of DK at the moment. So I grabbed out two colours and started combining them together. So with a purple and dark blue picked out I was off and running. It did take me a lot longer than I expected but I think a large element is how easily distracted I am! That and it was my first time trying a cable.
This is me taking selfies.... not too bad. I didn't get a good photo of it off me because as soon as I finished sewing it I put it on and it hasn't come off. Sooo warm!
I like the fact that it is nice and wide and sits over my ears as an ear warmer as well as a headband. It's been a little chilly here recently and this is warm without being silly.
I used this pattern I found here and it was lots of fun to do.
The changes I made were to use 6mm needles and doubled strands of 8ply acrylic. It was what I have around the house.
