I wanted to squeeze in a post today.
You know it's a grand day when your amarillis finally blooms! Mine bloomed this weekend and I just had to share:
I also finished up a quick knit - a fair-isle headband.
I wanted to practice my colorwork techniques, so I whipped up this headband. It was a great little project to try - no worries if it gets messed up because it's not like it's a sweater or something big.
I tried several techniques while knitting this:
- knitting with both hands (knitting with my left hand is currently a very slow process for me and I'm trying to improve my speed and tension)
- and knitting both colors with one hand (this actually worked quite well - I was able to knit at almost full speed and without twisting)
My unwilling model Bailey is sporting my headband as a collar!
