You see, he thinks he looks silly in hats. I think that's something people who rarely have to wear winter hats think. Global warming is real, at least in southeast Texas. It's ridiculous. I'm still running in shorts and tanks. I haven't had to cover my patio plants with old sheets once- in two years! I'm not too sad about that part, but I am pretty bummed about never having sweater weather.
But, if it is going to be cold a few days of the year, they will, without a doubt, be during one of my son's soccer games... in the rain. So, now my husband will only need to own 20 more warm hats to be as prepared as I am for winter.
He doesn't look silly, does he? He does look embarrassed that I'm taking his photo, though. Our neighbors were outside, probably tanning in swimsuits and running through sprinklers, while we took woolly hat photos. It does make for an awkward FO photo shoot.
I want to knit another one, this time in merino worsted. I have a bit of Malabrigo in the Plomo colorway, but I'm not sure it's enough. I really think the tonal merino makes the cable detail shine. I keep staring at that little ball of leftovers and wanting to cast a Maximus on right now. But I have to control the WIPs!
I also knit him some house shoes, but ran out of yarn and couldn't finish them by V-day. More on those, later.
