Mr. Edmo Stylin’

A few weeks ago in a post entitled Soul Bandage, I mentioned I’d cast on for a watchcap. It’s done now, with a couple of embellishments because the 2×2 rib was getting tedious. I added a little bit of cabling and I topped it off with SJE’s Marsan Watchcap finish. (I’m sure a billion other people have come up with this finish, but she’s the one I heard it from first. So nyaah.)

I should have put in the cabling a little bit sooner. But other than that, I like this basic setup. I’ll probably do a couple more of these before fall to stash away as gifts and emergency headwarmers.

    Love the hat. Perhaps one day you’ll publish your pattern? (hint, hint, wink, wink?)

    I think Mr.Penquin is diggin’ the look, too.

    Maybe you should knit him a widdle one.

    V. v. cool. I’ve been considering knitting my man-friend (does that read as sleezy as it sounds?) a watch of similar provenance–maybe I’ll swipe your general idea.
