Bamboozled headbands

Sometimes being economical can lead to a new discovery. Its only fair to warn you - these headbands are addicting, not only do they look great on, but are fun to knit. I purchased some Paton's Classic Wool (on sale ) and found I could get a Star Crossed Slouchy Beret and a Bamboozled head band out of one skein (both free patterns on Knittingcentralpattern.com. Taking photos right now is incredibly difficult, rain is forecast for the entire week and today there is even a hard wind with very heavy rain. I could not wait for nicer weather and I wanted to share them with you. My current wip is a beret and should have it done by this weekend (will share photos). By the way I hope the weather forecast is wrong - they said we could get as much as 20 inches of rain by this weekend (that would be more that we get in 1 year in less than a week).

I saw that forecast and thought of you! Time to get out the ol' sou'wester and galoshes. At least it isn't snow! (And good weather to curl up with some knitting.Love the headbands, have bookmarked them!)

Love the headbands. Are they back in style? We wore them when I was in highschool 50 years ago. A practical solution for keeping one's head warm without getting hat hair.

Cute headbands.
I might have to try one of those.

I am loving the rain because I get to wear my wellies I got for Christmas everyday!

Take that giant puddles!

That forecast matches our own, being "downwind" from you. Only, for us, it's snow. Monday 10.5", last night 9", coming Thursday: up to 5 ft! Keep dry, Jean!

You think the headbands look good on, eh? I haven't tried one lately, but there are several nice looking patterns out there....
