OK - so the title of my 31 day series is finishing what you start. I did not say that I would finish it correctly. Just wanted to get that out there up front.
Quite a while ago the girls and I were in a local boutique that had the cutest knitted headbands. Unfortunately the cute headbands were about $50. The girls were convinced that Mom could make them a multitude of these adorable headbands. So off to the store months ago to buy the yarn, etc that I would need. Screeching halt at that point.
Let me explain. I do not knit. I taught myself to crochet by reading articles on the Internet. That should explain alot right there. My skills are lacking to put it lightly.
So today I scoured the Internet for a free pattern. Hmm - nothing that comes close to what we saw. Looked on Etsy to see if someone was selling a head band or even better - a pattern. Again nothing close. So I decided - pattern, schmattern - who needs one. Obviously if I could crochet a scarf - i could crochet a head band.
Uhmm... wrong. I forgot that everything I crochet grows - the ending side is longer than the beginning side. Sort of important if you are making a headband.
So after many tries and now on my second skein of yarn, this is as far as I got
The clothespin marks how much too long the head band ended up. Yikes. So I am going to count this as somewhat completed until I get someone who knows how to crochet to help me fix this. And hey - I did get that one entire skein of yarn out of my stash!!
SO I hope your 31 Days are going better than mine today.
I just logged on and realized that this did not post yesterday. So this is Sunday's post
