I love knitting. But there are times when my needles sit silent, especially during hot months. When the air begins to cool and the evenings get dark earlier, I begin searching for a portable hand-project I can carry from room to room in the evenings as I listen to my man read bedtime stories to our little ones, or as we watch seasons of unbeatable Andy Griffith, borrowed from the library.
I love the feel of the smooth needles, the tug of the yarn through my hand, and watching something shape from nothing.
I especially love casting off. The excitement (and anxiety) of trying it on for the first time. Hoping it fits, and that it will be loved.
My boy has been waiting a year for this cap to start, and finish. He is so patient. I used a chunky yarn, so it knit up quick, once I begun, that is!
You can see more info (and pattern) here on Ravelry.
