and now my ears are warm

I finished knitting the headband that I mentioned in my last post.

It came out really great in spite of the fact that I used different yarn than what was called for in the pattern and I neglected to do a gauge swatch first. It came out a little big but I washed it in hot water which shrunk it down quite a bit and gave it a nice felted look.

The finished product:


I used a little red plastic rose button as a fastener:


Ready for a cold damp Seattle day:

I love the detail of the rose button. it's adorable. is this gonna be sold on the etsy site too?

most likely it will be. i just made this one as a prototype and i will make another right away to try and refine the look/feel. but ultimately, yes, they are quick to make so i'd love to sell them on etsy.
