Notes: I knit this headband specifically to take with me on the Stockholm/England trip, and I wore it a lot. It was so easy and fast, and I love the button closure. The pattern is better suited to a yarn with more elasticity to it (like a fabulous merino sock yarn), but I loved the idea of a little bit of sparkle, and had a small golden ball of the Berroco Lumina just taunting me with it's prettiness.

And all right, I knit it so that I could do FO photos in Stockholm. And it seems I wore that grey sweater pretty much any day we took pictures... I swear I packed more than one outfit.

It's very sweet, and I like the yarn choice (even if it isn't elastic). Does it slide down? Can't beat a foreign location for some FO shots, your vacation looks like it was lovely!

That's so pretty! That yarn, with its sparkle, was a perfect choice. I love your sweater, too!

It's lovely. I feel jealous as I can't wear any kind of headband, they just slide out of my hair.

And isn't the light in Sweden so fantastic for photography? I took advantage of it too: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/fingersandtoes/kukkola

It looks beautiful. Did you post pics of England? You know I'm from there right ;) I always love to see photos of 'home'! Will have to scroll through your old posts incase I missed any.

It's so lovely, I love how dainty it is. The gold is perfection.

Agree the sparkle is just right! I've added the Fiana to my Ravelry queue and Stockholm to my travel wish-queue. One day...

Very nice, I like the cute button too.

monikita said...

Pretty!!! I think I'll have to try making one of those. I have green and gold Lumina in spades.

Michele said...

So cute! The headband looks really good on you - I love that it is gold. It stands out really well.

Beautiful! Does it stay on your head very well? I think headbands are so cute, but they very rarely work on my head. Boo.

Aesderina said...

Okay. that sweater you are wearing in the pictures is AMAZING.

The headband is super cute, and the sweater is great. Is it one you made? What pattern?

Oh! I am so making this! It looks perfect in the sparkly yarn and I've got some waiting to be knit up at home. This might be my Christmas stocking stuffer to all my friends this year! Nice!

Cute! Nice job.

Very cute! I can't seem to get headbands to stay in my hair, otherwise I'd add it to my queue!

angelknits said...

It's totally you! Love the headband yarn and colour choice. I can see you pair it with anything. Lovely job!

This headband is too cute. Great vacation knit idea!! That gray sweater is very pretty. Did you knit that also?
