Give me more yarn!

I'm growing fonder of yarn by the day. There's so much you can do with it! I'm still pretty new at knitting and crocheting, though, since I had always been more of a seamstress. I'm definitely "expanding my craft," you could say. But don't worry, sewing machine, I have not abandoned you!

Anyway, I made a couple of quick projects I'd like to share. First I made a crocheted headband. I've crocheted plain old headbands in the past, but this time I made one with three strands that go across. I made some in other colors too. These are so fun to make!

I pulled my hair back so you can see it better...

I also tried making some crocheted earrings, like I said before. It was just practice so I used mom says they look like big snowballs though. So I'm not quite sure if I like them. Maybe in a different color or a different shape. I'll try to make more later.

So what do you think? Would a different color be better? Or a different shape? Or maybe I need to get thinner yarn or something so it's not as...fluffy? Yeah, fluffy. But, anyway, it's an idea!
I also finished a couple of hats - I will post pictures of them soon.
