Last weekend The Husband got a new haircut and almost immediately began to mention that his head was cold. I've been promising him a new watchcap for ages now, so this week I got off my duff and knit him one. I used a little more than one ball of Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed and a free
Seaman's Cap* watchcap pattern knit up on size 6 circs. I got to the decreases at the top and realized that I didn't have any of the right size DPNs, so off I went to the LYS this morning. Turns out they're all sold out in that size, so I had to learn something new. I'd never knit with 2 circulars instead of DPNs, but it was super easy! The key is just remembering to knit onto the same needle that you're using. Simple and brilliant. Love. It.
*heh - seaman. it makes me giggle.
