idle hands

Winter time activities in the Don and Carol haus:

I’m working on this hat for Don. The first time I have knitted in the round. Using Patons Merino Totem DK and 3.75mm needles (cast on 120 stitches). Worried that it may end a little small, but can’t shove it on Don’s head as yet, because the circular needle is smaller than his head. I’m not averse to frogging it, so it is an excellent experiment even if I have to start again.

Don uses his fave new tool. The edge pro knife sharpener! He imported it from Oregon and I don’t even want to know how much it cost (which is why I am not going to search for a link, because I might find out how much it cost). But the knives cut through things (that are not butter) like butter. He is, however, running out of knives – we may have to raid St Vinnies for practice implements.
