Sometimes being economical can lead to a new discovery. Its only fair to warn you - these headbands are addicting, not only do they look great on, but are fun to knit. I purchased some Paton's Classic Wool (on sale ) and found I could get a Star Crossed Slouchy Beret and a Bamboozled head band out of one skein (both free patterns on Knittingcentralpattern.com. Taking photos right now is incredibly difficult, rain is forecast for the entire week and today there is even a hard wind with very heavy rain. I could not wait for nicer weather and I wanted to share them with you. My current wip is a beret and should have it done by this weekend (will share photos). By the way I hope the weather forecast is wrong - they said we could get as much as 20 inches of rain by this weekend (that would be more that we get in 1 year in less than a week).
