A Marsan watch cap, among other things
I have admired the Marsan watch cap for a long time, but I never made once since I could never figure out how only 72 stitches on size 7 needles would make a cap for an adult.

I have almost a whole skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, in the lakeview colorway, but I’m also thinking about the Trekking XXL; there’s a lot of it left, too, and I love the colors in that. Decisions, decisions.
