Casting on the Baggy Beanie (scroll down page) by Erssie Major in solid black Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran as a quick gift project on #8 DPNs. Apparently, slouchy beanies for men are all the rage. I’ll probably have enough yarn for a couple of them. Hmmm, whom do I want to look like a celebrity? DS and DH, of course….
Non-knitting content: had the thrill of having my call taken on a local PBS radio show today! Bonnie Cha of cnet and David Pogue of the NY Times, technology beat, pontificated about smartphones. I was driving to buy dog food and made an impulse call (using my bluetooth speaker, of course). If you’re curious, look for Patt Morrisson’s show on KPCC or download the Patt Morrison Podcast from iTunes. It’s the Tuesday, February 10, hour 2 show at about 42:25. The segment begins at 25:00.
