Knits to Keep Him Warm

Knits to Keep Him Warm

My Father is almost impossible to buy for when it comes to gifts.  Both of my parents are, really.  Luckily for me, they appreciate the things I make.  This year, for his birthday, I made my Dad a cowl.  It’s the second one I’ve made for him.  The first was a couple of years ago for Fathers’ Day.  After telling me that he wears it all the time through winter, I offered to make him another in a different colour.  Also so if he got one dirty, he could have  a clean one.

My parents are off to the US and Canada for 5 weeks, which co-incides with the mid to late “Fall” season.  So to make sure that his head would stay as toasty as his neck, I offered to make him a matching beanie.  I started, and finished it today.  Simple top down construction, with a LOT of 2×2 ribbing.

He loves it.

It’s nice when people appreciate the time and work that goes into handmade gifts.
