Well, there will be pictures to come. Once I find someone willing to model it (in some fashion even if it's not on their heads). I think after I finish breakfast here I'm going to start on my next project. It is another dishcloth, it's an illusion dishcloth that features Hedwig, the owl from the Harry Potter movies. I don't read the books or watch the movies so this design has no significance to me, but I figured almost everyone else in the world is in love with Harry Potter so I figure I can't go wrong.

You live and You learn!
So last night I finished the Owl Headband that I have been working on for the past couple of days for the swap I'm in right now. Well, things started out rocky because I was trying to hand wind the yarn from the hank and it got outrageously twisted up. I spent about 3 hours trying to detangle this yarn. Then I cast on. From there on out in terms of knitting it was pretty good. Learning new things, and the pattern was coming out beautifully. (Much better than the owl I tried to cable into a dishcloth) So then I cast off. Well I'm a relatively new knitter and just cast off normally not really thinking that there would be a difference for casting off ribbing. Well now the the cast off has no stretch and I'm almost positive this headband is not going to fit her. Oh well, I already plan on writing her a letter explaining my new knitterness and hope she's accepts my apology. LOL
