I did have to take a little mini break to make a new headband. Lost my ancient one while Matt & I were in Rehoboth Beach to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. (If anyone gets to Dogfish Head Brewpub, it should be there). It's just a simple fisherman's rib headband to keep my ears warm, and works up very quickly. The one I lost was done in Lion Brand Jiffy and the new one is in Elann's Sierra Aran. The Jiffy one was wider and tighter (probably didn't measure it well, I didn't need to make the new one 20" long), but it was a bit scratchy. I might do some stash digging and see if I have some bulkier yarn to do an other one.Since I didn't use the entire skein of the Sierra Aran, it takes less than 90 yds. Hmmm... sounds like a good project to splurge on something super special!
