I had planned to cast on my shawl and a knitted knocker, but my plan went awry when I received a request that went like this —
Eric asked, “How long does it take you to knit a hat?”
“A few days,” I replied. “It depends on the design.”
Eric said, “A navy sailor’s cap with white letters – Kellie J. And could you do one for the Captain, too?”
They leave in ten days for a six-week season of commercial salmon fishing in Bristol Bay. Bought yarn this morning and cast on this evening. Pattern is Churchmouse Pressed Ribbed Cap in Berroco Ultra Alpaca. Full steam ahead!
