Afternoon tea

I have neglected my blog,for a long time,So decided to post a tea cosy I knitted recently.DSC00763


Pattern: Convertible Center Row Lace Headband / Neck Warmer

Lovely pattern from Rewind knits and crochet.

Category: KNIT
Featured Color Group: Fresh / Weathered Wood
Featured Yarn: Vanna’s Choice in Taupe

With curly hair, a busy work schedule and winter doing it’s thing, a headband that doubles as a chic neck warmer seemed like the perfect pattern to offer up in January.  It’s perfect to glam up that quick ponytail.  Inspiration comes from quite the variety of places, from beautiful movie stars of an earlier era, to runway looks of today, to vintage pattern photos to YEP, that’s right, Slick Watts circa 1979 Seattle SuperSonics.  You must forgive me, I grew up in Seattle and this team and especially this guy with his jaunty ever-present headband captivated the city as they brought home the only men’s professional sports championship this town has seen since, well, ever.  (heavy sigh over the Seahawks here).  Click here to download.
