for my bro
every time ben touches this he ohs and ahs over it. maybe he needs an alpaca hat too :)
vintage 2006 alpaca, made in pennsylvania
mountain colors mill ends – weavers wool doubled
some pretty decreases
and the shear fuzziness of it
ben and i were hypothesizing that my brother’s head is a bit bigger than ben’s. so although it looks big, we think it will fit lester perfect.
for my dad
fly fishing mitts. he does a lot of fly fishing – especially now that he’s retired. we tried earlier with these ones
but they didn’t work – came back in the mail and now ben wears them. only for someone i really love will i make fingers or finger holes. actually, i didn’t mind, i just need the time to sit down and concentrate.
knit on size 4 needles to increase the waterproof and windproof factor. not modeled because they’re too small for ben and too big for me.
for my mom
these have been done for a long while… i even used them in my thesis! more christmas posts to come, but without the deadline of christmas – so maybe after? i need to pick up some new needles (and i need more time) in order to complete them!
