                           Another snowy cold weekend here in 
                          the Kawarthas....

I can hardly wait to say it has warmed up and the snow is melting...

                        So I crocheted another set of 
                              fingerless mittens with 
                               a headband to match.

I used Red Heart Super Saver...Monet.....

Love how it crocheted up. Just my grands favourite colours.

Sorry for the photo on the right. I'm not used to taking pictures of myself with my IPhone......

She already has the mittens and I just finished the headband.

                    That was so easy.

The headband is knitted on 6mm needles 

                        cast on 26 stitches
                         knit 8 st. then purl 2 st
           (  cable st).put  3st on the needle in front of work
                          knit the next 3 st 
                           then knit the 3st  on the needle that's in front
                               of your work
                           purl 2 st
                           knit the last 8 st.

                        row 2
                        purl 8
                         knit 2
                         purl 6
                         knit 2
                          purl 8
This is it . follow these st. till you reach 19 "

Hairband is approx. 4" x 19"

                     Sew ends together weave in loose threads.

Hope your weekend was enjoyable!!

                          Thanks for visiting!



  1. I love the colours in this yarn. Very pretty and spring like. :) We need spring like colours don't we? :)

  2. How pretty! I'll bet my DIL would love one of those!

  3. Cute!! I wish you'd shown us your face though - your hair looks so pretty. Natural curls?

    And yes, I can't wait for this cold snap to end. Right now it looks like a crystal palace out there because there seemed to be a freezing frost last night. Everthing is white, white, white.

  4. Hi Linda, you are so talented! I wish I could crochet, knit or sew....LOL..I can always admire and appreciate.

  5. Cute! My Aunt Joyce was always crocheting too. One day I'm going to try to learn again.

  6. Very cute and great colors.

    I can't wait for the cold to go away. We had snow again last night. At this rate we'll be old by the time this house is finished.
