Panta Trouble

I made this adorable "panta" which apparently is Finnish for headband. There is a thread 50 some pages long on Craftster.org with many people modeling their finished products & I decided I needed to make one too. I picked this adorable yarn - Reynolds Santana - from the clearance section of the Woolie Ewe for $3.50. It was a great pattern for me because I learned how to increase & that it really wasn't as big of a deal as I was making it out to be. It went really quickly & when I finished it up last night & put it on it looked like CRAP on me. Definitely too wide, but I should have known that from the pictures I saw. It's cute though! So I modified the pattern to make it thinner & started a new one with the yarn left over from my sock class since I have no intention of making another sock..ever.

My blog was looking so sad with no pictures. So I thought I'd share my panta experience & I'll post a picture when I'm done. My next project is going to be a baby blanket and I am going to pick up my yarn on Thursday. LATER!

The panta is really cool - I love that yarn. I was at the Ewe this weekend and bought way too much yarn. I am working on a new pair of socks - come on.. frog that new panta and finish the second sock already!
