Cable Knit Infinity Scarves

My newest addiction- CABLES! I can't get over how gorgeous they make the simplest knitting projects. They turn a plain infinity scarf into a gorgeous accessory. I can't wait to make one for myself after Christmas.




iPhone Sweaters!

These make lovely christmas gifts. Considering adding the pattern to my Etsy shop after Christmas!

Braided Headband

I love my new braided headband - but let me tell you - it was a PAIN to make.
Instead of just doing cables, I literally knit three strips and braided them together. It was super annoying. Like really. I don't recommend it.

BUT it's gorgeous, is it not?

More Colors!!!

I've added 4 more lovely colors to my collection of headbands! I'm in love with these vibrant colors.









How To Avoid 'Headband Hair'

I cannot begin to tell you how many times I've put on a headband, left the house, and then discovered a few hours later that my hair looks ridiculous.

You headband-wearers know what I'm talking about- when you're hair starts to scrunch up or stick out.

Well I've discovered a solution. You don't have to avoid knit headbands any longer.



1) Start off with your hair styled the way you like it
(I went with wavy) 


2) Grab some bobby pins
(4 or more)


3) On one side, grab your top layer of hair


4) Bobby pin this layer of hair down 


5) Repeat on the other side


 6) I use 2 bobby pins on each side to ensure my hair stays down


7) Grab your headband of choice


8) Carefully pull headband on, covering up the bobby pins


9) Push headband up to make sure no hair sticks up 
(If it does, remove headband and pin that hair down. You may need to bobby pin the back layer of hair down as well as the sides)


10) All done and ready to fearlessly go out in public!

Morning Projects

I rarely get to sit down and just knit in the morning since I have work and school. This morning, however, I got to stay home and knit away. I got my wisdom teeth out Wednesday, and since I still look like a chipmunk, I've been limited to sleeping, eating pudding, and knitting.

I always have a small amount of yarn left over from knitting my headbands, so I decided to use it all for iPhone sweaters.






Also, I just ordered some lovely business cards! I can't wait to start handing them out!
