Meatheads, Swag and a New Addiction

Yeah. I've been knitting...but on the sly. Always on the sly. I will have a few new revealed projects after they are gifted later this week.

But....I did knit a meathead. And I heart it. It is going to be for Sara's girlie, KG. I made her a hat last year but it might have fit a newborn...seriously.

Pattern: Meathead Hat by Larissa Brown
Needles: Size 15 Clover Bamboo DPNs
Yarn: 1 skein of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky in Lotus Pink
Mods: knit in the round instead of flat so I reduced the stitch count by 2 for the cast on.

LOVED IT. It's a great stash buster...only requires one skein of bulky weight yarn which is doubled throughout and it only took an hour to knit! Haaaallo!
Okay, kids...now I need help figuring out an embellishment. A flower, a vintage pin, buttons up the side? Ideas?

In swag news....

This came the other day...

Scout's Swag Indie Swag Club for April in Lavender Mint...can I get an OOOOOOOOOO...
Of all the swag I've gotten from Miss Scout, I think this is my fav. I was so happy to have my name drawn for this round. Along with this skein came a tin of Heal My Hands in Lavender Mint, Heal My Lips in Madagascar Vanilla and samples of Heal My Feet and the Mask! I couldn't have asked for a better swag. Go support Scout. She is the bizomb!

In addiction news: Headbands...loving the headbands.

I'm in transition with the hair. I thought maybe I was going to go long again. Not so sure...so to help me not make a rash decision like this one....I'm going to hold back the mane with headbands. I tried several...some that Miss Tink loved...but didn't work for me very well....until I found this place....oh.my.land.people. I love these so much. They stay put and are super cute hair up or down. They also reversible so you get 2 headbands for the price of one. What,what.
Le sigh...oh Etsy...what you do to me....

OMG! I keep meaning to give out a headband I have here that looks rediculous on me. I am so not a headband person, and they are so cute on you! Darn you, Amanda, for having headband-cute hair! Darn you to heck!

Your meathead is way cute! I vote buttons or a little crocheted flower. *ahem* Sorry. I said the 'c' word!

Can I molest your SS yarn at knit club next week?
