Drop Stitch Headband Complete

The headband is complete and I’m pleased with the speed at which it was done. Stretchy and open, and really really cute.

 

Seriously- Look. It’s on sale on Ebay, if you’re interested. Let me know what you think. Should I make more of these?

Drop stitch headband

This is my current project- a White Drop Stitch headband. I’m planning, once I get it to length, to make a piece of knit fabric and make it look like a bow. OR, perhaps making a little crochet flower or bow and attach it. Or maybe both? Idk. This is basically working off of the  It’s a Cinch thing. But I’m adapting it for a more summery, airy style.

This will be available on Ebay, as early as tomorrow evening or afternoon, if you’re interested. The price will probably be around 6 dollars, since that seems to be my go-to for headbands. Also, this one’s not spectacularly difficult, so I can’t justify charging more. Shipping will most likely be free, or just enough to pay for the shipping label.

The pattern I’m following, in case you’re curious is;

 

Cast on 22 [or whatever you feel like, the cast on doesn’t appear to be really important here. Thick, thin….It all works]

I’m knitting the first four rows.

Then, I pick up a stitch like I’m going to knit it, and instead of wrapping once, I wrap three times. Then pull the wrapped thread through as though regularly knitting. Do that for each stitch.

Then, knit the first loop of each set of three, and let the other yarn overs slide off. Do that for each stitch.

Then simply knit the next three row [I count the first knit row after the dropped stitches as row one] and just repeat.

Sewing roundup!

Convertible top; A convertible top that can be worn 4 different ways. Wonderfully cute and versatile, and pretty easy to boot!

Cute over the shoulder bag; A cute bag pattern, this would be a nice beach day bag. :3

Tulip Skirt; This skirt is an adorable pattern. I can see it being gorgeous in a silky, light fabric. Maybe floral?

Men’s shirt to peplum; I love peplum shirts so much I can’t stand it. I messed up royally last time I tried, maybe I’ll try again.

Long Circle Skirt!!!!!; I LOVE circle skirts, I really need to make this.

 

Here’s a sewing roundup to inspire some sewing, these are really just too cute. Tomorrow I’m going to get a seam ripper and work on my sewing machine cover, then I need to do one of these.

Headwrap almost done!

I say ALMOST because I’m planning to attach a piece of fabric to it. Perhaps pink or blue, for contrast. If I go with pink, maybe a floral pattern. Or, light blue. I’ll check out my fabric stash tomorrow and see what may work, or I’ll go to walmart and check out some fat quarters or the discard bin.

I’m not sure what I’ll make next- Crocheting for hours at a time makes my hands feel really odd and clumsy. Maybe my next project will be a small scale knitting project. I think I’m ready to knit again after the kitty scarf ordeal. That burnt me out fairly well. xD

I’ll probably have some idea about a knitting project tomorrow. I’ll have my sewing table on the 22nd and be able to sew things again. :3

cool!

But yeah, stuff’s happening and after finals, it’s very likely that lots of stuff will be happening. I’m going to take a couple of semesters off to indulge my hobbies and interests before I get caught up in special courses and mathematics.

My earlier promise; Boho Headband take one!

Alright, I started to work on something. I’m using Bernat Sport yarn in Baby Baby, I think. I can’t remember which yarn it is because I long ago balled it up and have long since lost the label. I’ve had this yarn for over a YEAR and I’m just now making something with it. My god.

I’m making THIS which I found on Ravelry. I quite like it, though I wish I had used lace yarn for this. It’s fairly easy, so I can see making multiples. I can’t wait to have this thing done. I made it 250+4 chains long, which is quite a bit more than called for. I made more to account for the thinner yarn.

I made it through the first two rows, and now I’m taking a break. I think I may make it like 7-8 rows. Perhaps add some fringe to each end, I’m not sure. I do quite like this yarn though.

Fairly sure my next one will be made with this lovely teal yarn I have- or more like blue-green with a touch a of sheen to it. Or, maybe burgundy? I need to use up some of my stash before I buy more.
