1,002

I was kind of thinking that hitting a 1,000 posts would be a milestone, but then I totally missed it! So this is post 1,002 since the blog started.

and what could be cuter then the pom pom headband that I made to go with Malayna's latest sweater! I cast on 6 stitches, and used seed stitch to match the button bands and trim on the sweater. I thought about using a provisional cast on and kitchener to join, but in the end I did the lazy thing and sewed a seam once I reached the 17 inches I wanted. A pom pom maker was a big help with the pom pom.



Can't wait to hold the little one next week and get her to model Grandma's latest contribution to her girly wardrobe.

Love the wonderful knits you share with us (and, of course all the beady things, as well -- is there too much bling?) Can't wait to see these new ones on that wonderful and beautiful young model of yours! She always looks so happy to be showing off your creations.
Yours in beads, Vicki (from Portland)

That is just the cutest! I'm having a boy this time around (I have two older boys also - 7 and 5, well, 6 next Thursday, so I have no one to knit cute girly things for. It's so hard to find boy patterns!

Headband is so cute. I am sure that she would look precious in it.

Wow, Marcia!! 1 000 posts deserves some kind of treat. Reading what you post is always a good part of the day for me and I love seeing pictures of the things you make. You're an inspiration.

Your granddaughter could be a baby knit model!

That is the cutest baby girl headband I've ever seen. I'm probably going to have to copy your idea.
