Hat & Socks

Back when we had the new windows put in the living room the guy who did it for us did it as a favor. So I decided to give him a couple of things that he'll be able to use this fall. He wears watchcaps all the time in the cold weather, so I knit him one of my favorite hat patterns, Marsan Watchcap. I always add 10 rows to the length after the cuff. The yarn is Patons Decor in chocolate taupe. Ravelry details here.

I also made him a pair of socks, just a plain old 2x2 ribbed sock, 68sts on 2.25mm needles. The yarn is Selection Sokken-Effekt Strickgarn. Ravelry details here.

Soon off to take the kids to the movies tonight. I haven't been to a movie in a long time, the last one may have been Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, can't remember for sure. That was at our local theatre. The last movie watched in a theatre at all might have been Transformers 2, but we saw that at an Empire Theatre. Tonight we're going to see Transformers 3.

Happy knitting!

Great gift. I'm sure he will appreciate them.
Hope the movie was good. Our kids want to go to the smurfs. I hated them the first time they came out and I still dislike them. I don't plan on going if I can get out of it! Bah humbug on smurfs!
