Happy New Year, everyone! Hope everyone found some time to relax this past week.
I have spent the last week or so on the road at a basketball tournament and then a cheerleading competition. Lots of sitting around time so I did some knitting and reading. I made this headband and I LOVE the pattern. I intended it for my 20 year old for those cold walks across campus but she looked at it and said, "You're kidding, right?" Guess it's not fashionable enough for her. Whatever.... Another piece for MOI!
Pattern: Knitty Calorimetry
Yarn: Malabrigo - Autumn Forest
Needles: size 4
Cast on 100 stitches instead of the 130 called for in the pattern. I could have probably gotten away with only 90 stitches. I'm going to weigh the yarn on my postal scale at work tomorrow but I'm guessing it used about 100 yards.
No resolutions for me but I do love this time of year for the "fresh start" it presents. I have spent the last two days cleaning and sorting and organizing my sewing room including patterns, yarn and fabric. I'm not quite done but here are the before photos:
