Knitting is fun………Flower Headband

13 Nov

I am super excited, because I have just completed a project I have been wanting to do since last year. My bestie Jess and I went to NYC, and these pretty flower headbands were EVERYWHERE. I figured I could make one myself, so I didn’t buy one. Mistake. I didn’t really know how to knit until about 3 weeks ago. I have known crochet for about 18 years (crap that makes me feel old, but Grammy taught me when I was 7) and while I could have done one in crochet, I also have this problem where I start projects, get bored, and don’t finish them. So I nearly forgot all about it, and then I got this idea to knit a baby blanket for a friend. (almost done, just weaving in the ends, pictures later) And long story short, I remembered I wanted to make one of these:

TADA!!!!! I finished something!! I used a pattern from Ravelry.com and she had helpful videos on youtube which was good because I could hardly make sense of the pattern to save my life.

Skye was a great little model too, but it’s meant for a grown-up size head. So when I finish the baby blanket, and make the matching baby bootie for some cute little baby girls right foot, I’m going to try and make a smaller one.
