Finished rib hat and one wrister

Finished the ribbed hat last night, after surviving my stitch/end of row marker falling off and my not noticing, on the 3rd or 4th decrease row! Managed to work out roughly where I was and I think I got away with it.

Pattern: Ribbed watch cap
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in black
Yardage: Almost 180m / 196 yards (2 x 50g balls)

The only change I made to the pattern was to add an extra 10 stitches, however rib is very forgiving and I probably didn't need to.

On the left is me inexpertly modeling the first wrister-warmer (the odd bulge in my sleeve is a tissue, see how professional a photographer I am ...). I made that this afternoon, after being off work feeling a bit lousy. It's from the Pattern-A-Day calendar, just worked in simple 1x1 rib. Very warm it is too (Hazel, I'd rather the weather warmed up so I didn't need to make wristies as a matter of emergency!). Hoping to finish the other one tonight so I can use them tomorrow.

They look good and really warm. I'm waiting for the weather to get warmer too.

Hope you feel better soon.

The hat looks great and I love the wrist warmer! My computer room is a bit chilly (I close it off except when I'm in typing) and my hands get a bit cold when knitting, so I think something like that would be wonderful!

Nice job!

Thanks - the wristies were really warm today, and very soft. My hands can get very cold sometimes even in a warm-ish room, so I will definitely make some more. Sounds like you definitely need some to wear in that computer room Erin!

Where is my Calendar?? Boohoo! They said it would ship in 1 business day but no sign. Not that I need to start anything else you understand :)

Lovely cosy warm accessories :)
