In this never-ending saga of the hubster's watch cap, yesterday I thought that perhaps I had some Divine Knit-Blogger Intervention.
The Yarn Harlot posted photos of and the pattern for a cap she just knit for a guy. Sport weight yarn, size 4 needles, about 12 inches long, 2 by 2 rib. I liked the looks of it, but this watch cap won't be on my head. So I sent the link to the hubster and asked, "What d'ya think of this hat?"
While waiting for a reply, I began to look for suitable yarn and checked that I had size 4, 16 inch circulars.
Finally, I got the answer. "I like the hat, but not nuts about the ribs."
HUH?! That's like saying you like Black Forest Cake, but you don't like the chocolate. Or that you like Yankee Stadium, but you don't like the baseball.
Here's the watch cap I am knitting (and have serious doubts about) so far. Hubster says he likes it--so who am I to tell him about the ribbing?
