Folk Art Angel Hornbook and next knitting project

DH was nice enough to cut out another wooden hornbook for me because I had the perfect pattern to put on it. I love this folkart angel!!! I stitched it on 28ct. evenweave with HDF silks and then I stained it with coffee to give it that "old" look. The hornbook is approx. 7" x 4" with 8 holes across the bottom to hold your fibers. If you are interested in this, you can purchase it in my store.
While visiting my local yarn store, I came across this gorgeous yarn from Ella Rae. It's a superwash merino wool in a worsted weight which will be perfect for the below pattern I want to knit. This is for Jenn to wear when she's out jogging when it gets colder. She almost always wears her long hair in a pony tail and this will fit the bill perfectly. I just started it today so I will post it when I'm finished. This should only take a few days at the most to knit.

I hope the remainder of the week is glorious for all of you and that all your stitches are pefect and that pesty frog stays away.
As always, Barbara

The folk art angel on your hornbook is so cute! You are very fortunate to have a husband that is able to make stuff like that. :)

I love that headband too. I really like how they have it buttoned underneath. Looking forward to seeing you finish your's. :)

LOVE the knitted headband! Both my girls are runners and would love this. Keep us posted on how difficult it is to make (I'm such a weenie).
