The start of this next headband phase was last weekend, when I saw a stranded colourwork pattern in a stitch dictionary and thought it would look good in two colours of Wollmeise yarn from my stash (Lapis lazuli and Skarabaus, if you're interested!). I worked up a swatch and it did work, and also called to me that it wanted to be a headband.
Never being one to refuse my yarn its wish, I worked up this headband during a knitting meet.
On the train home from the meet, an idea for a second headband popped into my head and as soon as I reached home I dived into the stash for the right yarn to bring it to life. By the end of the evening, Two Rugby Games was sitting on the sofa beside Bubbles headband.
If nothing else, this winter I have absolutely no excuse for having chilly ears!
