Thanks for a good yarn

Recently sew mama sew had a massive giveaway day and I won some absolutely divine yarn from Johanna at Star-Cooked . It really is gorgeous stuff.

I was so excitied when it arrived that i didn't even take a pic of the yarn but got straight to crocheting an earwarmer for my early morning walks. I know I live in the tropics but it really does get cold in the mornings and my big ears catch the wind... :)

So I used Johannas yarn for the middle section with some grey yarn on the outside. Iv'e never made a headband before but it really was quite easy. Just do 60 chain then either single crochet or mix it up with a row of triple until it get's to the width you're after then sew the edges together. it's that simple.

Trying to get a shot of the head band... not so easy.

And I finally got the headband. Those colours are even more awesome in real life.

Thankyou Johanna, I love it. And thanks also to sew mama sew for holding such a fun giveaway. Next time I will have to get involved and give something away too.

Take care you xox
