Such mind-numbing television is served well by very fast projects. This can only mean one thing: Big Needles and Thick Yarn! The pattern Anthropologie Inspired Braided Headwrap was perfectly suited for this purpose. I started off with some alpaca yarn that was just too thin and switched to some ancient Lion Brand Think & Quick I had laying around from the first ugly beret I ever attempted.
The original inspiration:
The result of an evening tuned to Lifetime:
A note about my photos: I did a horrible job trying to take a picture of this thing. You can’t really see the braid unless I make it black and white. Maybe if I took two seconds to take my earphones out and set a timer, things would be more aesthetically pleasing for you. Instead, I took a series of awkward photographs that poorly illustrate an evening’s worth of work:
A delightfully half-assed smile, out of focus and no detail whatsoever on the headband. What a pro!
Out of focus, in a MIRROR, random closet items in the background and troll-like posture due to the fact that I’m taller than the aforementioned mirror. What is this, a mail-order bride posting on Craigslist? Way to class up the internet, Doog!
And always the headphones – believe it or not, I forgot I was wearing them. Delightful, polished presentation from start to finish. That’s why you click these hallowed links – I’ve got your number, reader.
Aaaaanyway, this is another potential Christmas gift. Is this still considered cute? Would you wear it?
