Model Husband


This is one of my first creations, the scarf not the man.  I made this about 5 years ago for my husband,  I never posted about it.  I taught my self to knit after 10 years of crocheting.  While at Michael's one day I picked up a kit from Lion Brand to make socks.  The yarn was Fisherman's Wool which was REALLY thick, after I got it home and read the pattern I realized this was not the best project to start with, so I knit a scarf for my daughter with different yarn.  Later I pulled out the yarn from the kit and made him a scarf .  The pattern, I am ashamed to say, came from a book I saw at Borders, it was a simple pattern that I copied onto a piece of paper because I didn't want to spend the money on the book for one pattern.  *GASP HERE*  I don't think he really liked it but he did wear it quite a bit so he didn't hurt my feelings.  I found it in the bottom of our "winter stuff" box and made him pose...thanks baby!

Cute pictures and great scarf! Heck, at this point, I have so many knitting books I would do the same thing too if I really wanted a pattern. I don't want to buy anymore books!
