Anyway, my lovely work colleague loves knitted headbands, so making one for her would be perfect! For inspiration, I went to my usual source, Ravelry. I stumbled upon a pattern called Hot Mess Headband which was a really simple but gorgeous pattern; 1x1 rib with a cable in the centre. Took me all of two evenings to complete, so super quick!
Knitting skills save the day! And thankfully, my work colleague loved it :D
