Fireman laughed as I finished my headband last night. Wearing a mask alleviated all my symptoms of stuffy nose and fibers in my nose... as I knit.
So glad I reworked this yarn into a useable head band.
Cast on 23 stitches on size 7 needles.
Work 5knit 2 pearl ribbing for
8 inches. You are trying to make it tight so the yarn will give in time and continue to have a snug fit.
Bind off, sew seam..enjoy.
Sometimes you do what you gotta do to to finish the knit plan.
It is Abe Lincoln's birthday and my Irish Grandfather's too. John P. McCormack, County Mayo Ireland. He had no enemies everyone always said. I remember two things about him only. I was very small when he passed away.
If we skinned our knees, he'd say in his brogue: It'll be gone by the time yer married
he'd sit me on his lap, draw a line down his chest with his finger and tell me half of him was the devil and half of him was an angel….
County Mayo…God Help Us.
