The Turban Trend

I have posted a lot recently about things I have cooked and things I like and upcoming shows and pretty things, but I haven't talked recently about the things I am knitting.  
On many blogs and in ads I was beginning to see lots of great turban style headbands.  I decided to try my hand at making a few, experimenting a little with design, width, colors, etc.

Here are just a few of what I have going on.  All of these will be at the Persimmon Hollow booth this weekend and then anything left after that will get listed in my etsy shop.

If you are interested in any of them now though, just e-mail me.  This chunky blue one is super soft and towards the wider end of what I have been making.

This mustard yellow is a cotton blend yarn, perfect for spring.  It is also the skinniest style I am currently making.

Self portrait sessions can be hard.  I tweeted, but it seems no one wanted to loan me their head this evening.

When smiling fails, I begin to just make faces.  

This particular one if being donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Tulsa's fundraiser that is coming up, but I do plan to make more like this one.  I am really liking this green color right now.

My little fly away hairs were not always super cooperative during this mini photo shoot.

I had actually already tagged most of these, so ignore the tag hanging there by my face.  I spend a long time sunday evening tagging everything in inventory to take to Persimmon Hollow.  I can't wait!  I really hope it is a ton of fun and a good turn out.

This turquoise is a nice medium width, light weight and very soft.  

The more of these I make, the more this style is growing on me.  I might be falling in love with it.  ;-)  Perhaps  will carve out some time to make myself one.  
Now what color do I want?

Thanks, Sandy! I am really having a lot of fun with these. I might even crochet a few. I have a few more cotton blend ones in the works because I love cool cotton in the spring.

I haven't really started seeing this around yet, but they're super cute! I think the green one is my favorite!
