knitting things

I started a new knitting project last night, it's a headband to keep my ears warm, an ingenious invention for us ladies who like to wear ponytails that interfere with hats (though I do like the hat I made...) Of course, on Monday at small group, we established I have a huge head. If this doesn't fit, anyone want it? It's going to be navy blue.

And then I happened across a quiz, and I am cotton. What yarn are YOU?


What kind of yarn are you?


You are Dishcloth Cotton.You are a very hard worker, most at home when you're at home. You are thrifty and seemingly born to clean. You are considered to be a Plain Jane, but you are too practical to notice.
Take this quiz!

That explanation fits you really well! Although "dishcloth" sounds bad... Hmmm

Hi, I linked to your post from Retrobrett's blog [I went to college with him and Denisa]. If you don't mind rocking pigtails under your hat instead of a ponytail you should try this pattern from knitty.com

Incidentally, I am Shetland wool.

Have a great day,
Jenni

Jenni - I saw that pattern, and think it looks cool... but I wear a ponytail more often than I do pigtails (though I do sport braided pigtails when the mood hits!)
I think knitty's the coolest- but many of the patterns are beyond my skills. I want to try the slippers but haven't tackled double-pointed needles yet.

Ashley - As far as I can tell, in the knitting world, the dishcloth is the useful, thoughtful gift you can quickly get done as a thank you or hostess gift (Trust me, I'll get one made for you eventually. Just give me an occasion). For example, when I knitted the hearts around valentines day, I was able to give one to Caroline on the occasion of her engagement. Unfortunately, I didn't have red dishcloth cotton around, so these aren't as useful as they could be! They're nice to keep around for stuff like that. It's a very durable yarn. It's actually the stuff I learned on.
