Sweetly Made (Just For You) is cute etsy shop where you'll find handmade women's hats, PDF knitting patterns, headbands and personalized Christmas stockings. It looks like Christmas stockings are quite the specialty in this shop and space is limited for Christmas 2012 (so take a look and get your order in!).
Up for review I received a beautiful knitted Button Up Headband in the Rose Heather color.. It's about 4.5 inches across at it's widest, and gradually tapers down to a point on each end. There is a button and button hole to connect it and create a headband. I found it very easy to connect it while it was on since there is a lot of "give" in the headband itself - it's nice and stretchy even for those of you that have a big noggin (like me!). It's not restricting or uncomfortable in any way. There is also a handmade little knitted flower that is removable with a tiny safety pin if you don't care for it or just want it in a different spot on the headband. It comes in red, light pink, rose heather, off-white or orange. I'd LOVE to see this headband come with some larger, two-toned flowers too. That would be adorable! Here's what it looks like on me! :)
I've actually been looking for a solution to help keep my ears covered on windy days. They seem to ache and hurt within 5 minutes of being outside to play with Buddy, despite my hair covering them! This headband totally works for me in that respect. Another thing to note is that the yarn used for the headband does not irritate my skin or make it itchy at all. I'm totally stoked about it too! I've knitted many of my own scarves over the years and pretty much all of them give me skin issues and make me scratch forever. That's perhaps why I don't just wear a knitted hat either since the material touches my forehead. This headband can be worn over your forehead or actually right at or above your hairline too. I'm glad I can do either way since this yarn agrees with my sensitive skin!
Overall I'm thrilled with this headband design, quality, and effectiveness in keeping my ears warm. Also, the price of just $10 (and some great colors) is unbeatable and absolutely worth it!
