I’ve very pleased to announce that my second promised Pay-It-Forward item has been completed and is in the mail.
Collegeknitting will soon be the proud owner of a Greta Headband.
Collegeknitting mentioned this pattern in a review of the Summer 2012 issue of Interweave Knits. She said:
I like the detailing on this one, and if I ever have a reason to make a knitted headband, this will probably be it. The stitch pattern and gathered (twisted?) detail will probably keep it pretty interesting. It’s certainly a step up from a simple garter stitch band, which is what I’ve had to do in the past.
As you’ll see when you receive the headband, the twisty look is created using a small plastic loop as part of the construction.
This headband is knitted in Rowan Creative Linen (50/50 cotton/linen). It starts out pretty soft and should get even softer over time. I knitted Gemini with this yarn and can report that it loooves a good agitating in the washer.
Next up is the third prize winner: Anastasia Wright from For the Knit of It. I’ll be reading your blog carefully to find just the right Pay It Forward gift for you.
Very nice, she is very lucky
