Weekend project

So, I've been wanting to try one of these for a while but I never had the will to sit down and figure it out, but this weekend I finally did!

I knit myself a headband! (also I now have bangs)  Its a big deal because it is the first time I've done any knitting that wasn't just a rectangle.  That means I had to learn to do fancy things like increase and decrease stitches. 

I got the basic pattern from T. Matthews Fine Art, it is a free knitting pattern, theirs includes a flower on it, but I decided to forgo the flower.  I made it super simple since it was my first attempt at a headband but I think I might really rev up the challenge next time because I want a cable stitch : )  

This really didn't take me very long to make surprisingly.  I did re-start several times but with the help of several 'how to knit' videos I made it through.  How about a couple more beauty shots eh?

Happy knitting!
