Lately I've been working on simple small things, like coasters and washcloths. Mom mentioned awhile back that she thought it would be cool if I knitted a set of coasters for her. I have a bunch of Red Heart yarn that I never use, but I like the colors, so I made a set of four out of it. It was also her birthday on Sunday, and she wanted some armwarmers. I looked around and found a pattern that I thought was suitable. She wanted a simple pattern, but I didn't want to knit just garter or just stockinette. The pattern is called One-Day Wristwarmers. I did them on size 9 DPNs in Bernat Berella 4.

I also made a couple headbands out of some yarn I bought off of knitpicks. The first one followed the pattern I found in terms of width, but I made the back strap thin, but it was still too much for my fine hair. So this one I cut the stitches on either side of the lace pattern way down, and this is what I came up with:
I'm currently working on gloves with a simple lace pattern. I'll post pics of them when I finish!
