Get It Twisted

Look at that, it’s 2019! I mean, I know that my last post was on 2019 but it hadn’t fully started to sink in. Now I’m feeling the new year. It’s hard to explain, ya know? That the new year is here and real. Back in December I spent a lot of time thinking about 2018 and all the things I did, the things I didn’t do, and the things I wish went better. All that was nice but now that 2019 is here, I’m feeling like I need to be better and it’s already stressing me out. Ha! Not that it takes a lot to stress me out. I stay stressed out. But now I’m thinking about how to be better, how to hit some goals that make me feel like I’m good at this and that I’m progressing. I don’t want to stay comfortable, I want to keep moving forward and become someone I can be proud of. I watched Julie and Julia yesterday while working… maybe a movie about my blogging experience? Nah, that would be boring. With more breakdowns than Julie had in the movie (sometimes I just cry to get all the extra emotions out of my body).
Dunno.
I am going to stop yapping on, as I keep seeing people complain about food bloggers who talk about their lives before recipes so I’ve been feeling self-conscious about my little “about me” portions of my posts before you get to the good stuff (the pattern). Although, a person does make a blog and they share personal experiences – it’s a part of the existence, ya know?

So. Yeah. Today’s post is a fun and quick pattern I really hope you like. I was seeing so many fantastic twisty headbands on the internet that I wanted to make one of my own! I don’t often like to take trend advice from people (I’m tragically trendy and all) but I wanted to see if I could make this pattern in a very “me” way. I don’t know if I accomplished it but I do like the way the twist works out, with the different pieces, and how easy it is to slip on my head. It’s a pretty decent walking/hiking headband if I do say so myself. And it’s a real quick project. I made this in one night. It took longer to write the pattern than it did to make it.  😀

I really hope you like this design and share the link with your friends. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #DivineDebris or tag me in the photo when you share your projects <3

  2. Wow! Talk about timing! I just ordered 10 skeins, Vanna’s Choice in Peacock!! I can’t wait to make this! I just need to search youtube and look for instruction on making the slipknot. I’m sure it’s really easy, I just don’t understand what you mean. This one? This one is for ME!! Yay!!
