This week has been my week of Headbands.
After I finished the Colinette hat I had enough left over from the skein to make a headband. (You can find the picture 3rd down.)
While I was knitting the headband I realized that a headband is actually a really good way to do a yarn sample. For one you get to see a large enough sample of how the yarn knits. For another I get to experiment with knit /purl designs at the same time putting ideas out there.
Headbands are a really quick small gift project. For the most part you can get 2 head bands out of one skein so those luxurious yarns like Noro and Colinette can be used for a drop dead look.
New...The Estelle Twelve Yarn. Twelve different yarns in one skein and NO KNOTS! Two to three make a scarf. Perfect gift as is for a knitter to make a perfectly simple yet stunning scarf.
On October 10th Jane Ellison is here for the Carlos glove workshop.
