I decided that I would knit a hat for the boyfriend for Christmas. Now, as he reads this blog daily you may wonder why I am ruining the surprise...
Well, have you ever tried to surreptitiously measure someone's head while they are asleep? *laughs*
In the end, I measured his (awake) head and showed him the selected yarn, just to make sure he was happy with it. So, instead of a Christmas gift, it'll just be a non-surprise, hey it's getting cold out gift ;)
I did buy new yarn for it, because nothing in my stash was suitable. So I took the opportunity to buy something I want to knit with and have heard good things about:
Malabrigo Worsted. Pure Merino; so very, very soft and lovely *grins*
So, boyfriend will be getting a very luxurious hat. But as he has only ever received one knitted thing from me, and patiently watches as I knit for myself without grumbling, I think he deserves it!
