Ski bunny attire

I was headed cross-country skiing this weekend for the first time in ages and decided that I needed a new accessory…so I whipped up a wide headband that would both keep my hair out of my eyes and cover my ears.

I followed the Center Row Lace Headband pattern off Rewind Knits & Crochet (found via Ravelry).┬áIt knit up easily in an evening and I even had a little wooden button lying around to use for the base (yarn was a hand-dyed skein I’ve been saving from Craft Akron in Akron, Ohio)

Baby booties

I’ve been sick all week but I did manage to knit up a pair of baby booties for a friend of mine who just found out that she’s expecting a little bundle this summer:

I used the pattern for “Ruth’s perfect baby booties” – I still need to find some ribbon to tie through the eye-holes at the centre but I think they turned out well. They also look cute with the leg portion up or rolled down.
