That's my favorite part too!

Welcome to the April KAL!

I actually finished my blue scrunchie!

I used some of my handspun blue merino wool. I'm still learning to spin, so it wasn't consistent by any means. But it didn't need to be perfect for this hair scrunchie.


After binding off, I seamed the ends together to form a ring.


Then, I found a hair elastic in my bathroom drawer.


Next, I put the elastic around the knitting scrunchie.


Then, I wrapped the edges closed around the elastic, and seamed them all around.




And here's the finished scrunchie!


It works well!

Thanks yarncharmer!

Those little scrunchies are so fast to knit. Perfect for summer knitting.

I finally got my headband done! It only took about a day to knit once I was able to actually get going. This is the best pic I have been able to get so far. I'm going to try to get one with it on soon.

That's so pretty, Lieuvena!
And I think it's cool that you learned two new things with the project!

Ooo pretty Lieuvena!

I finished my double knit headband and it's washing right now. When it's done I'll update with a photo.

I have finished my headband too. Although I almost lost it to my youngest sister over the Easter break. I will try to put a photo on later today!

I think it's a compliment that your sister almost took it!

I'm going to pull out the fair-isle headband I started in the Fair Isle 101 class I took at the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair last year. I really need to finish that!
