Skier or Snowboarder?

Uh, mm , knitter?

I have no desire to pay a lot of money to hurtle my body down a steep and slippery slope, risking life and limb and great humiliation, but I am happy to sit in the lodge knitting while my boys do. So on Saturday, I filled my knitting bag and we headed up to Eaglecrest.

I needed a quick fix to fill the gap between Ene'’s Scarf and the yet to be determined next big project. I'’m not a hat person, but the ears do get cold, so I thought I'd give the Drops Design Headband that has been making the rounds a chance.

Just in time, too. Temps are 15 degrees colder today than yesterday and my headband made it's debut as we shoveled last night's snow off the driveway.

Pattern:Drops Design Headband

Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 in cotton. I knew I shouldn't make it out of cotton, but I had it on hand, I liked the color, and it was the right weight. It's working for now and when it stretches out and falls to my knees, I'll make another.

Needles: US size 6

I want one of these! Obviously I'm out of the loop, this is the first one I've seen. Looks great!

It makes you look like a snowboarder.
A very cute snowboarder.
And of course, now I want me one, too.

Gorgeous - and very comfortable, isn't it?

I love the headband. I will have to search out some yarn for one.
