Feeling groovy

A few weeks ago I had a desire to make a really funky and fun headband. I looked through Ravelry   but didn't find exactly what i was looking for. I wanted something groovy, something 60's inspired.... So i sat down and made it.

A few friends are currently testing out the pattern and after they've finished, I'll share the pattern here. I sent out 6 new colorway ideas to be tested (one didn't make it into the picture), along with the pattern.

Stay tuned! Pattern to come!

And so it begins...

Wow, it's all happening! The little seeds I've been planting over the months are starting to sprout.
I cannot even express how excited I am to be pushing this third baby (Lucky Lamb) of mine into the world!
I've had so much wonderful support through this process. My sweet husband, my darling little 2 and 3 year old "helpers", the friends that have proofed for me, tested yarns and patterns for me, put up with my texts and questions.... Many many thanks to all of them for helping Lucky Lamb get to this point!!
Looking forward to posting many pics, patterns, thoughts and ideas here.
Let the journey begin!!
