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!
