off topic post

A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to begin to knit, with an eye towards having to sit still far from a kitchen or machine shop.

Over the past couple of days, I made a “monmouth” type cap. Started Wednesday, finished today.

I know it is not quite accurate to the surviving known example, but I do not know enough about knitting to resolve that. In time, perhaps.

Many thanks to those who have taught me the skills which led to my ability to knit.

It fits well.
