My hubster is a real good guy and he doesn't say a word as he sees more yarn coming into this teeny-tiny apartment. For the past three Christmases, he's even enabled my stash habit by giving me a Knitty City gift card.
I've never knit hubster anything. So when he asked if I could knit him a watch cap, of course I said, "Sure!"
However, for the hubster, the perfect watch cap is like my quest for the perfect summer bag.
Here's what he wants:
dark blue or black
long enough to roll up like he did when he was in the Navy
it shouldn't look like a beanie when rolled
long enough to cover his ears when rolled down
able to keep in his coat pocket when not on his head
no fancy designs
So I'm now attempting this perfect watch cap.
Tomorrow marks four months since his surgery. Four months since his heart was stopped and repaired. Four months of watching him get stronger and healthier. Four months of thankfulness that everything will be OK.
The hubster can be as fussy as he wants. If the watch cap isn't right--it's only yarn and I'll fix it. Doing this isn't exactly heart surgery. And knitting the perfect watch cap doesn't even require the patience, work and determination it took to recover from heart surgery.
