I love Christmas-time! And I love crafting for the people I adore... My 16 year old step-daughter mentioned that she likes koalas, but wasn't sure how to craft one best, as she isn't into stuffed animals. She does love hats, but I just made her one for her birthday in September... So I thought a nice headband/ear warmer thingy might be fun.

Since I'm a lazy knitter, and like fast projects, I went with a bulky roving wool. That actually ended up being perfect, and the pom pom ears are pretty awesome, if I do say so, myself. =D

My 12 year old, Lydia, begged to model it. And for me to make a second one for her!












And here is the second one...

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Yes, I did. They are about 1/2" in diameter.
