About Me

I'm a forty something mother of two girls ages 17 and 11. I enjoy knitting and figuring skating. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was about 7 and I'm still "figuring out knitting!"

Ribbed Cap - Part 2

:)  DH gave my BIL Mark his cap . . . and it was well received!  He put it on immediatly and before my DH could drive the 20 minutes home, Mark had called to tell me how much he liked it and how much he appreciated it!  Ordered KP Shine yarn to make another in cotton for him to wear in bed.  He commented that he would like something in cotton for when the weather is warmer and for bed.  A definite go do as soon as I get my yarn. 

In the same order, I bought a complete set of Zepher needles from KnitPicks.  I have the Nickel Options set and love them too.  I am using a set of Zepher tips I purchased at my LYS to try on my Slanting Gretel Tee and love, love, love them!  Order should arrive Feb 1 and I can't wait!

Knit On!

I just finished this ribbed cap for my BIL Mark. He is undergoing chemotherapy for throat cancer and has lost his hair. I used his favorite color for the main body of the cap and added the stripes to "jazz it up" a little bit. I think he will wear it.
