Feeling a bit crafty

This is what I've been up to in the last week or so.

I made a wheat pack for a friend

Actually it's for his cats

I'm growing my hair at the moment and it's become rather feral and unruly (the curly hair curse), so I thought a few headbands were in order. This is my first attempt made from vintage sheets. I like it but found it a bit on the wide side. If you're interested here is the tutorial I used for the headband.

Headband number two, is a much better fit

Lastly a new jumper for Tony. I'm using a 12 ply wool angora blend, which is super quick to knit with it. I've had a massive knitting disaster recently, that will be a post in its self. This new project should restore my knitting self esteem, I hope!

What creative things have you been up to lately?
Cheers Lisa

You have been busy. I love the wheat bag and the hairbands look great. Creatively, I have been busy doing yard work. Does that count?

I am hoping to find the creative streak in my this year. So other than cooking, a little pottering in the garden I'mnot doing much.

I dol ove your hairband (the skinny One esp) as I too have wavy-curly hair and would like to hold it back esp. on wind blowy days. I may give my hand at making on one day.
