I am blessed to have a handful of real, live knitting friends, and each of them are different. They each influence my knitting and my life in unique ways.
Natalie inspires me to be more energetic, to exercise, to enjoy my baby more, and she keeps me young. She keeps my knitting young, too. As I get older I realize that I am no fashionista, but I have Natalie to help me. It was she who aided me when I was choosing the pattern for the sister-in-law-Christmas-sweater. And it was she who inspired my first headband pattern up for sale in my new Ravelry pattern store.
The Natalie Headband is a simple ribbed headband worked from one end of icord to the other with decorative increasing and decreasing sections to form the shape and give the ribbing movement along the piece. I am sure that my knitting buddy will make her own with fabulous improvements – a big flower and/or a cute button – and I can’t wait to see it!
This headband is the first of a set that I have been working on. I will sell them individually as I complete them, but when all is ready I plan to put them together in an e-book.
Coming up next – Wren.
