Is it Friday already?

Seriously, for a minute there I wasn't sure what day it was. I've been working 4am- noon, and it's really messing me up. But it is, in fact, Friday, and I would not want to disappoint.
Don't be distracted by the cuteness of this baby.
This headband is really unfortunate. It's the Angel Baby Headband from Lion Brand, free pattern here. I quote, "Make this festive headband and let everyone know just what kind of angel that baby is!"
What kind of angel? The kind that is going to wear this headband for about 3 seconds?
It's made out of not one, but two, strands of fun fur, in gold and pink. I'm disgusted already. I suppose you could mix up the colors if you wanted too. Why not make a devil baby in red and black? That might be the kind of angel that baby is.
And apparently, this is made simply by casting on a bunch of stitches, and then binding them off. There is no knitting involved. This is a headband, that you expect a baby to wear, and you are using the least flexible stitches involved in knitting? Shouldn't there at least be a little ribbing?
It's just not sane. But that is a really cute baby.

The only time I would ever subject a child to this head band is may be I say may be loosely, it for a Church Christmas Pagent... And then for fun I would take a lot of pictures and bring them out when they are a teenager and trying to date...
