Heavenly Headband

I've been ogling the kits at Morehouse Farm for quite some time now. Well, I decided to treat myself this year and ordered three of them. I got the Headband, Baby Alligator Scarf, and Gecko Scarf.
I cast on for the Headband right away.
I ordered the "Mermaid" colorway but the color that I recieved wasn't quite what I expected. I still think it's gorgeous! I love this yarn! It is sooo soft, and I'm usually sensitve to wool but wearing this headband hasn't really bothered me - so far!
I think the yarn is Morehouse Merino 2-ply and I used size 3 needles. I used approximately half the skein. The headband is knit in a 1x1 rib (with garter stitch borders.) I followed the directions for length and it fits perfectly! I've only worn it a couple of times around town so I'm anxious to see how it holds up while outdoors for extended periods - like at the ski area...

The headband is very pretty. I've been considering those kits myself. They are so cute :).
