mini project: braided headband

Just finished knitting this chunky braided headband.  It was an experiment in doing a cable knit which is new for me.  I’m not always in a beanie mood.  So this is a nice alternative.  Keeps the ears and head warm on chilly days.  Used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick.

Also available at my ETSY store if you like it!  Check it out HERE.

Christien Meindertsma knit these giant rugs with wool from a sustainable sheep ranch.  Each hexagon swatch below represent the yield of one sheep.  This is part of the Design for a Living World exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in NYC which is showcasing products made using sustainable materials from around the world.

I need giant knitting needles like hers!….
