My newest published pattern is a year old.

I originally came up with "A Tale of Two Headbands" for the Phat Fiber Sample Box in January 2010. Since then, I've come up with other designs and vastly improved my photography skills.

I made headbands with this pattern recently for 2 nieces who have birthdays around Christmas. People with birthdays around that time seem to get a combo gift. I try to remember their birthdays and send them something on the day.

Here are the Two Sisters Two Birthdays Two Headbands;

This is the original, made with Malabrigo Chunky, purchased from WC Mercantile in Navasota, TX:


And these are the narrow headbands of a mesh/lace:

And the two headbands from one skein of Malabrigo Chunky that inspired the pattern:
