A friend sent me this book
earlier in the week, and that, combined with some glorious photos of knitting unfurling on IG and blogs as Winter has us in its freezing grip, has inspired me to pick up some needles again.
Knitting and an audio book – The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes – is just so relaxing that when I stop I feel as if I’ve had a deep sleep. This might be the same sensation you experience after meditation?
I came by this headband pattern on Pinterest I think. Here’s the link. I can’t see me wearing it but I just liked the idea of cabling again. It’s a fast knit with chunky yarn (a leftover ball of Sirdar Escape chunky from when I knit my Bergere de France poncho) and size eights, even for a rusty knitter who keeps dropping the cable needle down the side of the sofa.
I may offer the finished headband to my generous friend who posted the book along with some VERY interesting yarn. I’ll show you that another day.
I’m also getting on with sewing up and adding little pearly buttons to this
which is indeed a little doll’s dress to give to a friend who crafts for charities. She’s always happy to add my random offerings to her stall, or at least is good at pretending.
Sorry it turned out to the longest wait for an answer to a silly little Guess What question ever!
I like that doll dress!
It was easy to knit too – one of those more impressive looking patterns which are really dead simple to do.
The headband will be a fun pop of color against grey skies and storms.
Definitely a good bright colour combo. Nice soft yarn too, although a little fluffy.
Love the yarn for the headband. The color is gorgeous.
