   So, tonight I went to go see Paranormal Activity with my boo. It didn't so much scare me as it startled me, over and over, during the scary parts, while boring me to tears during the non-scary parts. So I was very glad I had brought a ball of yarn and some needles with me. I knitted this headband on straight needles, and got the actual headband part done while I was in the theatre. It kept my hands busy and also kept me from looking at the screen during the startling parts. The cord and pompoms had to wait until I got home.

     This was my first time doing cables, even looking at a pattern with a chart in it, (I didn't follow the chart or even look at the pattern, which is why this looks a hot mess. The pattern is really cute, it's in the Holiday issue of Interweave Knits.Smiley and making pompoms. I am very excited about this headband, as it will keep my ears warm without giving me hat hair. Excellent.

     And without further ado.

    

     Pardon my crazy expression, I just wanted to show how this looked when it's actually on one's head. c:

    


     EDIT EDIT EDIT:

     I didn't really use a pattern for this headband per se, but there is a good pattern in the holiday issue of Interweave Knits. I kind of bushwhacked mine by eyeballing the photo of that one. I'd love to post how I did it, but don't want to claim credit for an idea that wasn't mine, or post a pattern that's probably incredibly similar to a published pattern by someone else. Sorry! The link to the magazine is here: http://www.interweaveknits.com/holiday/holidaygifts2009/gifts_preview.asp
