Priveledged Man

 Now, I love being a knitter and I love my husband, but sometimes he can get a bit pesty about his knitted "needs." (INSERT EYEROLL HERE).

He has already received mittens, and a hat.  But apparently that left his neck out in the cold, literally. I don't knit scarves. I find them boring. Sorry if you're a scarf knitter but generally it's just the same pattern over and over for 6 feet long... mercy!

So, considering my husband is a fashion forward metrosexual Asian... he opted for a Cowl. Yes, I know... but I promise it's manly.

 Everytime he wears it, it makes me love him just a little bit more.  Which is nice since he wears it almost daily right now. The pattern... funny thing... called the Simon Cowl.  And I used Noro Silk Garden Sock that's been burning a hole in my yarn stash since our summer vacation.

And guess what? Now the husband is pestering for a sweater vest. I've already purchased the yarn and the pattern... lucky man!

Now, you might have noticed that I added a www.knitmeter.com widget over to the right... My goal for 2011, is to knit 5 miles. Nerdy. Heck yes! And I'm on my way... already done with 3/4 of a mile! Go me!

(Sorry if you can't see some of the links... join Ravelry! It's free!)

He is so lucky, the scarf is beautiful. I love the color.

What about a men's onsie PJ's with FEET? My husband use to say if I crocheted him one, he'd wear it to work. Haha...but now he works from home. Not much motivation there. I love the Simon Cowl..it's pretty sweet lookin'.

I still think the mittens you knit him are, like, the coolest thing ever.

And yer such a rockstart. K totally came home from school with Valentines made from your '09 idea. I mean, yes, you're on just about every blog/idea site I go to, but I knew it was the real deal with K dumped out his V-day box and you were "featured". I took a picture for you, I was so excited...and nerdy :)

in addition to being a "rockstart", you're also a rockstar. It's 4:00 a.m. deal.
