Well, I just finished my 6th "London Beanie" -

I'm having a blast with circular needles (Addi Turbos ROCK!)

I made the first beanie for me and then decided that no matter what he wears, a 49 year old man will never look like David Beckham!

I left a couple out on the dining room table when my partner's kids came over.  They all said "you knit these?  They look just like the ones at Abercrombie and Fitch!"  I also mentioned them to a 24 year old guy in my voiceover class and he asked me to make one for him.

Well, I just finished one for my partner's son (light blue tweed with burgundy stripes.  I also delivered the one I made for the guy in my class.  He went nuts!  Asked me if he paid me $30.00 if I could make another one for him in navy or black.  Man, that feels good.

So, I've got too much yarn and not enough patterns.  Always on the lookout!  Thank goodness for the internet (and not just for the porn!)

What fun to have your knitting so appreciated!  The London beanies are very popular here in New Zealand but I think it has something to do with the cool/cold weather and so many men with shaved heads.  Well done! 

I've got knitting fever in the worsted way.
