My husband asked for a hat. A hat with a lice pattern and a pop of color like the sweater I just finished. He really liked that sweater. I would have made it a lot larger for him if I had known.
I have some lovely merino/cashmere that I bought on a cone from WEBS many years ago. I made several sweaters and shawls from the stuff and it is quite soft against the skin. Perfect choice I figured.

My husband could barely wait for it to dry before wearing it.
Next, maybe more hats. My daughter told me their heater repair guy won't have the repair parts for several weeks. She's cold now too.
