Newsboy Cap

I've been taking a little break from serious knitting to be completely overwhelmed by the holidays, but I have started the Newboy Cap from Stitch 'N Bitch. Making it in Manos, in the Natural color. It's my first foray into magic loop, and so far so good. I even did a few of the cables without a cable needle but decided it meant I had to be more careful than I wanted to be, so i have been going with the cable needle again. I've finished the main height of the hat and am decreasing the crown. I need to find some of that plastic canvas for the bill, but I imagine this is going to be a pretty quick project. If I ever work on it.
