Ok, I have not yet participated in a KAL, but this looks like one I can handle lol! Love the small projects.....and Sandy's scrunchie inspired me! I'm sure I can find SOMETHING in my stash to use for one....or maybe even a nice headband........off to research!

Jan, your headband looks great! Was it fun to do?

I love the double knit Christmas blanket that will be the new KAL - I think the headband would be a good manageable size project to learn how before jumping into a major project like that blanket! Good job!!

Thanks, Sandy and Yarncharmer! It was fun to do, but there were so many stitches! I just couldn't picture that this would fit anyone, but it worked out somehow. I can't even imagine how many stitches you'd have to cast on for a blanket to be double knit in one piece... Let's see, if you need 50 for one block across the front that would be 100 for both sides. So if you want 5 blocks across then that's 500 stitches not counting any edge stitches for a smallish blanket if I'm counting correctly. If you use a lighter weight yarn so it's not quite so thick that's even more...
Oh. My. God.

I have managed to put a photo on over at WhatchaKnitting (with considerable help from a client).

I bet it WAS a lot of stitches! And you're right....I bet the blanket would need a TON of stitches cast on.

Got mine I need a better pic though. Don't you just love these HIDE BEHIND THE CAMERA SELF HEADSHOTS?!? I made the Star Stitch Headband. It's in Lion Brand Cotton Ease.

Arielluria, I love it!

This was actually my "false start" headband at the beginning of this KAL(I started and frogged several times). I really like it and have it in my queue waiting for a yarn that I like with it!

It was an easy knit, it took me a couple of tries to get that star stitch right, but I don't do directions very well It was easy.
