Crochet Headband


I started crocheting this a few weeks ago - just for fun. I've seen some really cool crochet headbands around and wanted to have a try at making one.

Now that it's finished, I'm not really sure if I like it at all... the colour is rather ghastly, and as you would have already guessed, Symon gave it the usual "are you serious?" look when I asked him what he thought while I was wearing it.

So, as it usually happens with all of my strange/rejected/deformed creations, one of the kids gratefully inherits it, although despite her begging, I didn't let her wear it to school today (mainly because it's a bit too big and she tucks her ears out to hold it up!).

But boy I love these photos we took of her wearing it yesterday - very cute indeed (I bribed her with the headband to take such nice photos)!

    Sharing some of hubby's 'love' of things crocheted, all I can say is you are amazing to keep on keeping on in the face of his dispassion (and expressions..). Great photos and great model (who happens to look like very much like brother no.2) xx
