New Blog, New Projects!

Hi Everyone! I was originally waiting to write my very first blog post until i had some pictures of my projects, but I got too excited and just couldn’t wait! Apparently this week is just so crazy busy, and I’m away all next week (Woohoo!) so I figured I’d bite the bullet and post sans pictures.

My new craze are the crocheted bulky headbands, I have been trying out a whole bunch of them! I am really happy with the last one I made, adapted from Rescued Paw Designs Cabled Ear Warmer Pattern. I chose to use a deep forest green for the first one, and a gorgeous plum/purple for the second one, both using Lion Brands Woolspun yarn Bulky 5. They turned out so great! (Cue imagination picture here)

Next on my bucket list is Mama In a Stitch’s Golden Fave Twist Headband pattern. I’ve made it once before, and I love the stitch – so simple but looks so pretty. The only thing is that Mine always turn out to be monstrous, and that’s after cutting down on the number of chains I’m doing. I just started another one with only 11 chains instead of 15 and it’s still too big. I may have to try 9! 

See? Too big. 

I honestly prefer to work headbands with a small chain widthwise than work them lengthwise. For some reason, I have a hard time with the beginning chain, and when it’s 50 chains long, it just doesn’t work for me. Any one else feel this way? Unfortunately so many patterns are lengthwise, and I don’t trust myself so come up with a completely new pattern yet.

I may update this post with pictures when I get home, but lets be real – there is just so much do to I may not.

EDIT: I actually took a picture guys!!
