RE: decreases in ribbing, there are a few things you can try.  First, you can try switching to smaller needles, to tighten up the gauge.  If that doesn't create the right effect, you can try k2tog/p2tog in the reverse stockinette portion (the side that is depressed between raised sections on the RS) of the ribs, so as not to disrupt the pattern on the RS.  So then the spaces between ribs will get thinner, but not the ribs themselves.

Hi Erin,
Hey all you craftsters, my eleven year old daughter has joined us.  She's been knitting since she was 8. Let's give her a friendly welcome. She's the one who posted, "Hi Mommy." Thanks for the tips on decreasing ribbing, Quincy.

Hi there!  I've been knitting since I was eight too!  But I bet you're much better than I was when I was eleven (or even better than I am now).  I wasn't a very patient knitter.   Smiley

Hey! This is a great idea for a knit-along.. I am so going to start on the ones from kenko knits, except I'm going to make mine much longer, so they are more like total arm warmers instead of just wrist warmers. I'll post my yarn and progress soon! Good luck to everybody else!

Note that the Kenko wristers have a version without cuffs:

Just in case you want something different.

Thanks! I think I'm going to do a cuff on the hand end and no cuff on the upper-arm end. Just because.

I have no idea.  Embarrassed I know it's cheap though. I think I got it either at Joann's or Hobby Lobby.
