FO: Swatch Cap

Still managing some knitting.
I swatched today for Elizabeth Zimmerman's Ski Sweater in Color Patterns. I managed a gauge of 5 stitches per inch, but I really want a bulkier looking sweater, like in the Opinionated Knitter so I'll have to swatch some more.
But at least I managed a cap, right?
A Christmas present, perhaps?
I knit it in Cascade Ecological wool, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will bloom during the blocking.
I used size 8 needles and the cast on was 72, but I increased 12 stitches after the ribbing.
That's all for today. Quick post; haven't written any novel bits today, yet....
