WIP It Good! + 3 Minute Headbands

crochet WIPs March 2016

~~~ I will not purchase additional yarn until I finish all my WIP’s. Full stop! ~~~

There, I said it and you are now the (unwilling?) witness to this declaration XD

I can’t be the only one to lack stick-to-it-till-done powers when it comes to crafting/crocheting, am I? πŸ™„ Clockwise from top: my aqua-metallic infinity cowl, my 3-minute headbands (done!), a bag-purse thingy, and a hat.

I took the above picture over the weekend and I’ve made good progress since then.Β  I think I’ll be done with all of these before next Wednesday rolls around – I want to because I refuse to buy any more yarn or start any new project until these are finished XD

Meanwhile, I was playing with some leftover crochet cotton and my fingers (unbeknownst to my brain!) came up with these very easy-simple headbands.

I combined 3 random colors for each and crocheted (ch 3, *1dc in 3rd ch from hook, ch 3) until I had the desired length, then fastened off. I left enough thread at the back for the ties.

These 3-minute headbands can be worn in twos or threes (or more), and in whatever color combinations. Just one also looks great on its own. I find it an attractive way to tuck stray hair strands away whenever I have my hair up in a bun. Cute, eh? πŸ˜‰

Okay I’ll be off to finish the remaining projects now πŸ™‚ Hook happy!

P.S. Belated International Women’s Day greetings to all you fierce, feisty females out there!Β  β€οΈβ€πŸ’‹β€ β€οΈβ€πŸ’‹β€

    That first statement is a bold one! I always say that but end up somehow during breaks between uni classes at a yarn shop… looking at gorgeous yarn… placing them on the counter… and then my mind blacks out until I’m at home with skeins of yarn that I don’t need πŸ˜›
