I recently re-worked the Serendipity Earband for Knit Picks IDP. I knit it in Seraphim and Blackerry Cadena, which is a bulky wool/alpaca blend. For under $12 you can make 2 ear bands with the colors reversed. If it had been available at the time, I would have been tempted to try their new bulky, Biggo. But if you look at the pattern's Ravelry project pages, it looks fabulous in all kinds of colors! Go nuts!
We had a bunch of fun shooting the photos for it too. Doesn't my friend look adorable? I wish I had hair like that!!
