Newly Knitworthy

I'm sure many knitters have felt the strong urge to outfit loved ones in hand knits. It's a little hard to explain to a non knitter, but there is a tugging at the heart and an itchy feeling in the fingers to get the knits made. Many of my friends and family have hand knits, but to my disgrace, Connor was missing his.... until now.

It was a little difficult to figure out what should be knitted first, but we decided that a hat was needed. I used the Watch Cap pattern by Michele Rose Orne. This is the third time I've used this pattern and I still really like the look of this hat. The yarn is Mythral from Stansborough, but it is a prototype that they were working on when I bought in 2010

Connor is pleased and has been wearing the hat everywhere. He has proven himself knitworthy. I see a matching cowl in his future.

Has anyone else got a newly knitworthy person in their life?

Yay! If they spoke, my Fiasco would tell Connor that a steady supply of handknits is one of the biggest perks to marrying a knitter. :)

Beautiful pictures....and yes, my friends Deidre and Danae are knit worthy...actually beside myself, Deidre has the most of my projects made....the Hubs occasionally will ask for something...but he is not one to wear knit things..although he did just ask for an earwarmer..I made it out of leftover Malabrigo Rasta....and he loves it...as he has been out chopping wood at his parents for the past couple of weeks...
