Kicking and screaming

I've been dragged, kicking and screaming into the Christmas gift knitting trap. My wonderful hubby on two different occasions, has hinted that he would like to have a knitted scarf. His exact words, "it's a shame with all the knitting that you do, I don't have a nice warm scarf to wear".... said on our way out to our son's soccer game Saturday night in 40+ degree weather. The second comment came when he "fondled" my latest scarf project, knit with malibrigo and mohair, and said, "hmmm this must be my new scarf". NOT....



So, that led me to some stash enhancement where I picked up this beautiful cashmerino yarn, in a nice manly grey/blue This will be his new soft, warm scarf. Pattern from last minute knitted gifts, men's cashmere scarf.


My only problem is I will have to do the stealth knitting, early am, late night and on my lunch hour.

Oh well, he's worth it. I'm actually planning to knit some nice warm mittens to match.

There's nothing like a guilt trip from your other half to make you pick up the needles!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Your husband is going to LOVE his scarf & even if it's a mad rush project, you'll be knitting with gorgeous yarn so that will help!

That's so sweet that your hubby wants some of your knitting now. Mine has just taken to not-so-subtly requesting or stating that he needs a scarf, after I finished it for myself! I'm sure you will get that scarf completed in due time!

Ha! My hubby got me to knit him a pair of socks that way. "Hmmm, so is THIS the pair of socks that are FINALLY going to be for me?" and the other (much more passive-aggresive) comment was dropped a couple of times while I knit socks in bed, "y'know, my feet STILL get so cold at night. . . . "

Funny stuff these hubbies.
