Knitting in Sequins

All a messy bun needs is to be surrounded by a few sequins, right? So, my lovely daughter was checking out my yarn stash--she has quite a yarn stash herself, she could open a yarn store I think. However, our favorite yarn store is Simply Fibers and maybe I can give you tour sometime, but in the meantime, we ran across a bit of pink sequin ribbon yarn purchased there a while back. Immediately, I saw a sequin hair scrunchy coming together! I knitted it up in no time--making it about 10 stitches wide, sewing a seam with more pink yarn, and inserting a piece of elastic. Boom--ready to go in my messy bun! Those sequins really hang onto your hair too!  I think it's funny I took the photo above and captured a note on my calendar--"chili buffet at our house" on Halloween. It's a family tradition to have the Halloween chili buffet and use the first of our canned garden tomatoes--more fun to come!

Eat good food, write down your favorite quote, dream your dreams, and stitch everything.


  1. Just had to stop by and thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog post today. You are so good with knitting needles. This hair scrunchy is very pretty in pink. It goes well with dark hair, that's for sure. And I love your saying. The perfect way to live!

  2. I found your blog through the Blog Hop. It is so bright, cheerful and inspiring. I can't wait to explore further.
