FO: Ribbed Watchman's Hat twice

After I knit Myra her little pink hat, Logan has been asking for his own hat.  Of course, I couldn't knit him the girly cables, so I went hunting for a sufficiently manly style.  The Ribbed Watchman's Hat is worn by the soldiers in the Isreali Army.  Can't get much manlier than that!
I knit Logan's in a blue to coordinate with his hoodie.  My Ravelry notes are here.  While I was at it, I thought I'd replace Mitch's old nasty running hat as well.  I didn't tell him what I was up to, so it was a bit of a surprise.
Mitch's was knit in a bulkier yarn on bigger needles, so it is a little larger than Logan's.  It should keep him nice and cozy for his early morning runs, and it's a lot nicer than the ratty old one he had before.
Here is my family, all with cozy warm heads!  I guess I'd better knit up a pint sized one for the Wee Professor...

ETA 10/23:
Here is the one for the Wee Professor, with some matching mitts.  Rav notes are here and here.
