As I sat on the couch drinking beer, watching football and knitting; I thought about the new year approaching. I started thinking about my Christmas list for next year, because everyone knows you gotta start that thing at the beginning of the year, I quickly remembered I had a scarf to finish knitting. Yes I have said knitting, twice. Yes I was the one doing the knitting. I’m sure I have said this before, beards continually surprise you in a continuous manner. I’m a person of restless mind syndrome. This means I have to have something to do, always. Well, I have been wanting to learn how to knit, mostly to make toboggans, the ones that go on your head. But I would be willing to do some mittens, scarves, and socks if the need arose. A scarf is the easiest thing to learn. I asked my wife to help me out, she thought I was playing, I got the yarn basket and made her teach me.
This might come as a surprise to many of you. “This guy knits?” I can see you asking yourselves. Do not judge, there are many things that I can do that surprise alot of people. I can sew, I am not a master seamstress, but I know how to operate a needle. I know damn well I can cook and clean as good as any woman. I love cooking.
As my creation came to an end, I was somewhat bum-fuddled as to what the hell it was. It started off as a scarf project, but it came out a square. Don’t mind those large holes at the top, its for airflow, tho I did not purposely do that on purpose. As I was contemplating what I could use this as, many thoughts filled my thinking mind.
“Hey!” I told myself, what about a blanket for the kitty cats. Cause I love my kitties and they look cold. If they have a blanket they won’t have to curl up in all those weird positions to stay warm.
Another option that I came up with is a summer sun, head shield for Stoney, our dog. I do not think he will keep it on though. Probably have to knit a chin piece for him.
It is a little small to be a blanket for Baby Gurr.
Ya’ll take a look, let me know if you have any suggestions. Be prepared for more knitting projects to pop up. My main goal is to be able to knit toboggans. At some point, I would like to make some toboggans for the babies at hospitals.
