Oh, and you wanna see the newest yarn I dyed up? It's in my Etsy Shop right now!

It's called "Alien Invasion":

What do you think??

Your yarn is great! Alexander's favorite color is 'neon'. On my monitor it looks very neon and he said he loved it. Alien invasion is a perfect name. :-)

Jackie said...

Wow! That alien invasion is AWESOME!! OMG you just gave me the incentive to finish my Jacqueline. I guess the cable sweater takes the backseat!

Nichole said...

Timing is great... I just wound up my Lilacs in Bloom to cast on for the headband... now I have to decide WHICH one, lol.

Daisy said...

I just bought the pattern. I'll pull out some stash yarn shortly and get going on it! Fun stuff :)

Sonya said...

Fingering weight?? I'm using DK. Was I supposed to be using fingering weight???

YogaGardenGirl said...

Hi Sonya....the dk is okay, too. The pattern has a gauge, but it's not absolutely necessary...it's only a headband.

I had to mark the pattern with whatever weight the Yarn Botanika yarn I used was....it should be fingering/light sport...but I think they think of light sport as DK...it's confusing. As you're going along, why don't you take a measurement and see if it's the width you like?

What yarn did you decide to use?

Gina : )

Alien Invasion is gorgeous! You did a wonderful job.

Sounds like a fun contest!

Sonya said...

Hi Gina, I am using King Cole smooth DK. It is 100% acrylic but a really nice acrylic. Color teal
