Well I went with the hat. It’s a 1×1 ribbed beanie in Silk Garden (shade 225) and I finished it yesterday. I’m quite pleased with it even though I measured my needles wrong and knit it on 4mm rather than 4.5mm. At least its ribbed and I have a smallish head.
The tonsils are gone now so I need to recuperate. I’m already sick of daytime TV after one day but DH is being lovely and taking fantastic care of me.
