Girlie hair bands







I've been keeping myself busy lately, what with the constant rain.  I finished the tank top (or vest, whichever you prefer) I was working on.  Since it is winter I popped it on over a shirt, so I wouldn't freeze!I think it actually looks better over a shirt.


FYI my almost-5-year-old took this picture!







After I finished the top, I went a little head band crazy Here are a few things I've been working on:

cable head band


cable head band in blue


I knit the pink and blue bands flat and seamed them together, but I am going to have a think about knitting them in the round because the seam bothers me a little bit.  It doesn't bother the girls at all though, and that's the main thing.  


After I made the cable hair bands, I thought I would try a flower one.  I made the flower out of i-cord and the band is just moss stitch knit in the round. Next time I really need to switch to a bigger needle when casting off, because I feel it was too tight.  Again, the girls didn't seem to mind, but since I have to make another one (the joy of twins!) I'll see if I can't do better.

  6. The head bands are great and I love the vest.

    I'm with you on the seam for the cable. I have the same issue with the one (and only so far) that I have made. Not sure how it would be knit in the round... would love to know how it works out.
