Headband and a failed project

 Headband motif up close

The fair isle design is from: "200 Fair Isle designs", by Jane Mucklestone.
The motif is 24 stitches and 19 rows.
There is 6 repeats on the headband, making it 144 stitches wide.
The Headband is knitted on 2,5 mm needles.

I found it a bit too slim so I added the crocheted edge.
Can't really figure out whether I like it or not.
I will just have to wait till autumn to see whether I choose to wear it or not.

I have started on a new pair of mittens.
> And then I unravelled them again.
I found I had knitted too tightly, and then everything seemed to fail.
Which was soo frustrating you won't believe it!
And it, plus some other stuff, totally ruined my evening, and a part of today as well.

Unbelievable something like that can mess me up so much.

But, I have of course started on a new pair of mittens, to calm myself.
