SOS number 2 February Fitted Pullover

So here you have it sweater number 2.

A much newer project, started in Jan 2013. All but the sleeves on this number have been done for a bit. The yarn is Dream in Color Classy in dusky aurora.

I needed to set in the sleeves but I procrastinated for a few weeks. Then when I went to seam the sleeves in, I messed one up...then had to take it out and re-sew it back in. Note to self: seam set in sleeves from the top down! So much easier and looks great!

All the details can be found here!

Next up is my Cinnie Sweater! I need to finish it up so I can wear it this summer! Though there may be a brief break to to finish up the heels on a pair of afterthought stripey socks!

Headband madness

So for longest time I had super short hair..then I grew it out to about shoulder length, then within the last year I've tried to grow it out abit longer. Which I like...but then sometimes I want my hair out of my face!
What to do what to do? I have a variety of clips and such, but I do like headbands....but the plastic ones tend to give me a headache plus I can't wear my sunglasses with them, annoying! Then there's those little skinny elastic ones..don't even get me started there my curly hair does NOT like those at all.

So I decided to make my own....a bit of a search on Pinterest and google produced many good choices. This site had a ton of links . This is the one I decided on. I've made thicker ones before, but really a lot of times I just like a skinny little band to keep my hair out of my face and off the back of my neck. So I measured around my noggin, and it was the same as Ashley's. So I went digging through my fabric stash, and stopped at JoAnn's and bought some 1/8th yard cuts and 1/4" elastic and went a little crazy!!
I've been cutting mine about 2" then sew..mine come out about 3/4" wide or so.

Um yeah, I've made 16 so far.....

and I have plan for more!
