This design started as an improvised project and quick knit for a Queen's Day headband (Koninginnedag in the Netherlands). I didn't have anything orange to wear and so I quickly picked out some orange yarn and knit this up. The Amaranth Headband, in its published
form, is a more refined version that fits most head sizes, and is long enough to be tied at the ends to secure it.

My grandmothers were the reason I love hand-work and crafts so much. As soon as I was able to manage a needle and thread, they gave me craft-related responsibilities abound. My earliest crafting photo is me at 5 years old sitting atop a table making a foam cake base in deep concentration, craft glue in one hand and crepe paper in the other.
