You are The Cap'n!
Some men and women are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any scalawag who stands between them and unlimited power. You never met a man - or woman - you couldn't eviscerate. You are the definitive Man of Action, the CEO of the Seven Seas, Lee Iacocca in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. You're mission-oriented, and if anyone gets in the way, that's his problem, now isn't? Your buckle was swashed long ago and you have never been so sure of anything as your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off his head if he shows any sign of taking you on or backing down. If one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

I am quite pleased with this. Now I just need to buy a pretty shawl pin. Etsy here I come!

This knit took a LOT of yarn. 15 balls of the Madill Eden, to be exact. It is a very dramatic cardigan and the bamboo feels soooooo soft and squishy.

I am calling it Three. Since it is the third try at a knit with this yarn AND since the pattern has a lot of 3's in it,
And a close-up:
I cast on 3 stitches, k1 yo k1 yo k1, k back, do this for 3 rows, then continue but knitting the first and last 3 stitches and purling back, doing yo's around the middle stitch only.
Therefore, Three. I am hoping for a small shawl or neckerchief type FO.
