Here's another hat (in case you're interested):

It uses only 1 skein of LB's Wool Ease Thick & Quick and is SUPER fast to knit!!

It makes sense to me, Sue, whether you mean find another man or another hat. I think you meant hat, but still.....As I recall you knit English and ribbing in English is less than fun; even Continental I can't say I love it. To do much ribbing for someone signifies a big commitment!

ETA: OK, I see you said another pattern. I missed some posts in between.

Yeah, I'm experimenting on a hat now doing k1 sl 1 then a round of knits and alternate the 2 rounds instead of ribbing. It looks pretty good until you stretch it, then it it doesn't look like ribbing anymore.

It was hard enough to find a man where the feeling is mutual, so I plan on sticking with this one for a while. :D I'll do ribbing on a hat edge, just not so much for the whole hat.

Absolutely! We must establish ground rules and boundaries. If knitting a hat lasts longer than a relationship... Sue, seriously, I'm very happy for you. It sounds like he's very much worth doing ribbing for.

Oh, a hat only takes a few hours, building a relationship takes a lot more time. It's very brand, too, have only been dating a few weeks and due to our work schedules can usually only manage to see each other on Sundays, though he calls nearly every day. He's getting some extra days off over the holidays and may actually be on days for that week when he does work, so that could intensify things.

Here's hoping the hat, the ribbing, the cables, the holidays, and the man all work out stupendously!! (Did I miss anything?)

Thanks. Though I might do a basic beanie. I know he's got one like that.

I made myself a bright pink hat out of "watermelon" yarn. Can't miss me on the ski slopes. Manly for sure.
