But the Weeds are Still Green

My ears get cold really easily in the winter. Any wind at all when the temperature is under 55°F will feel like someone is jamming a sharpened icicle into my ear. And hats are always too thin, ride up, or look super goofy. I usually circumvent this with hoods, but sometimes they just make me look like too much like a juvenile delinquent. Got to maintain a low profile, ya know?

The answer is headbands. I made this one out of a turtleneck from an old sweater. I just cut it off and voilà: a thick, warm headband that pretty much stays in place and doesn't make me look shady. 

I'm also wearing Keen boots, X2 jeans, Woolrich fleece, and a Wilson's leather jacket, to which I have added many pins and some pyramid studs.


  1. Yours turned out great. I'm partial to knitted headbands/earwarmers. I'm going to try to start making my own soon. We'll see how that goes...

    1. Thanks! I have some black yarn sitting around to knit a headband... so many projects, so little time. Haha. If I ever get around to it, I'll make a post just for you!
