The crocheted headbands are multiplying – in my drawer and recently now on my head. (The red one alone seemed too matchy-matchy with my shirt so I tied on the orange one too.)
I first saw the pattern for these over at creativeyarn. And they’re a fun, fast project, but in the comments of the pattern post, I noticed a number of people having troubles. So with Marta’s blessing, I wrote up a tutorial, including step-by-step photos and explanations for beginning crocheters; it’s posted here.
For me, they’re a great mindless task for when I wake in the middle of the night and need twenty minutes* of distraction before trying to fall asleep again.
*Note: I can’t finish one in 20 minutes. I just give myself that long before going to bed again for 20 minutes and then repeating the cycle til I eventually fall asleep… Tried reading, checking email, catching up on blogs, etc. but that easily turns into an hour. : )
So, what color should I make next?!? : )
