Thankfully I made my peace with sewing in ends before I started the Gray Skies Chevron Headband! (No idea what I am talking about? Check out this post.) I had to Skype into a two-hour training session which gave me more than enough time to work in the ends. The training was given by one of my coworkers in London. Somehow listening to a dry training on design control becomes a little less yawn inspiring when accompanied by a good accent.
I love accents and love listening for little differences in the way people talk. When we moved down to New Mexico a number of years ago, I tried to convince my husband that we should have British accents. We didn’t know many people except my extended family and it seemed like a great time to try something new.
Well, his idea and my idea of the fun in trying something new are slightly different and I wasn’t brave enough to go it alone. A couple years after we moved, the company I work for was purchased by a company based in London. Can you imagine how awkward that first call would have been?
Oi! Where you from?
Well, here is a pattern for a chevron headband that matches the gray skies chevron scarf which is, hopefully, not awkward. If you made the scarf, you should have enough yarn left over to whip up this winter must have. Enjoy and stay warm!
