FO Friday: Andy’s Capp

FOfriday

When I was a kid we had the Andy Capp comics around the house.

Andy’s Capp  I think I captured the essence of Andy’s Cap

DH loves it and has declared it's his. Too bad it was a Christmas present. Have to make another one :0)

 Looking on Ravelry I couldn’t find something similar, so I came up with this. I saw something similar on a vintage pattern, knit on straight needles. I tried to keep to the spirit of the old pattern with a bunch of more modern  modifications, knit in the round, not as floppy resized and changed the needles to tighten the finished fabric…

Another view: He says this makes him look English. Quite and achievement since his parents were German and Czech :0)

I have to admit I’ve been naughty this week. I dug out Diablo 2. The country side is now safe for settlers in several districts. Nothing relieves stress like a little chainsaws and pixies  :0)

The polls are still open till the end of the month, vote here!

Is anyone interested in a Sports Bra, Ladies Underwear, or Unisex Boxer Shorts Tutorial? I am thinking of making some and will record the process. Please list which you are interested in. So far there has been one vote for a Sports Bra. Anyone else want to weigh in? I will probably be doing an example of each. So I am going to try a poll to determine which to plan first.

    I do like the cap. My dad used to wear a cap. They used to be an old man’s hat, but I think they may be coming back into fashion again.
