  2. Now that we're calling knit caps "beanies," what are we supposed to call real beanies?

    1. And I always called them watch caps. The Navy gave me one for free and paid me to wear it!

    2. That's the term I prefer as well. When I was growing up in the South, we also called them toboggan caps, or "boggins" if you were either trying to be funny or didn't know any better. A beanie is what Goober wore on "The Andy Griffith" show. It needn't have the weird serrated edge, but can simply be like a brimless baseball cap.

  4. Beautiful sweater. What size are you wearing, if you would be so kind to tell me? That roomy fit is perfect.

  6. I realize that the “beanie” term is ubiquitous, but I’m also in the camp that calls a cuffless knit cap a beanie and one with a cuff a watch cap. We called my dad’s knit hat with a cuff) a “dopey hat”, but that was just us smart-aleck teenagers talking.

  7. Not relevant to these particular offerings, but I just made my first Bosie purchase, a Fair Isle sweater vest for my wife. The website was easy to navigate, and the across the pond delivery via DHL was very quick. The sweater is gorgeous and was a big hit. I share this for the benefit of those who, like me, have been wary of overseas purchases.
