The watchcap is complete. I finished it up while doing laundry. Nothing to it, and I think I will use a bulky, rather than a super bulky weight, yarn when I make multiples for Xmas presents. I think I put maybe six hours total into it. This time around I used circular needles; I can't find my #13 straights. Not sure where they are - although I have a feeling they may be with my art supplies. I seem to remember wanting to use one of them to poke a tube of paint or texture or something.
Once I get my checkbook balanced, I'm going to order the wine colors set of KnitPicks lace sampler. I really love the hand. I'm also going to compare prices on bulky yarns - I got a Lion catalog in the mail, but I honestly don't like so much synthetic content. It you're going to go to all the trouble to make something by hand, shouldn't it be good stuff?
Which is why I feel somewhat guilty about the squares I'm making for the RMBR project, but I had the yarn in my stash, so I didn't want it to go to waste.
