Winter Lace Head Wrap

Last year for winter, we got three blizzards. This year we're getting 20-degree weather. It's days like this I'm thankful for my cozy perch in my warm bed in the window. I prefer to watch other freezing their butts off in the cold than to be out in it myself.

However, The Animator's Wife has to go out in it. She's not much of a "hat" person either, so to combat the chill nipping at her ears, she created this piece of lovely.

  3. I made this and it turned out perfect! The pattern was so quick and easy! I'm using it as a head band to add some pizazz to outfits or if I'm having a bad hair day. Thanks for the great idea!

    1. This was actually done with a handspun wool from Ireland, but Patons Classic Wool Worsted would work just as well. :)
