knitted band
so i feel like i have neglected my blog. sad day. i kind of stress out when i don’t post something. lol. is that normal?? well since i didn’t have my machine for a few days, i knitted! i felt like the knitting lady. literally taking my yarn with me everywhere…i loved it. here are a couple of lovelies i made!

i pretty much just knitted the entire band….and knitted and knitted. 15 stitches across. :) for beginners like me it takes some time, especially with lots of distractions.

when i felt it was snug enough, i sewed the edges together.
knitted flower
the “flower” is just a braided strand that i wrapped around and sewed it on the band. easy!!

my first attempt at a knitted bow! *smiles*

i just knitted the band…again to fit my head and sewed the edges together. this one was only 3 stitches across.
knitted bow
i busted out with the knit and purl action on the bow! 25 across and 10 rows. that took more concentration on my part. i caught myself knitting one or two when i was on a purl row. lol. need to work on that. then knitted another small strand to wrap around and hand stitched that on since it was too thick to put through my machine.

these are perfect for bad hair days….or lazy days. been wearing one all day today. :)

peace and love

    They’re super cool, I’m just starting out knitting so I think I might have a go at something like these myself. Thanks for the inspiration
