Smith just does not know what he is missing. At least a hat is some compromise on the issue.

If you had made him 32 hats he probably would have lost a bunch of them. Does that make you feel better? Have fun with your Christmas knitting!

Tom is the very same way about the hand knits! Hats . . . he loves! Everything else? Meh. :-) (My Leftie is taking a break, too. I love it and all, but I don't have time to give it the attention it needs!)

I have been a poor example if a knitting wife. At least you have given him these things and he has had time to choose not to wear them (the socks? Really?!). I haven't made any of these things for my husband. Yet I predict they would languish unloved in the closet and drawers. I don't think he would even wear a hat. I keep thinking he might wear a vest. Such a different climate here. Knit on and never look back with guilt. :)

Good luck with the hat! I am sure it will be beautiful and Smith will love it.

If you didn't knit, Smith would adore handknit socks. Murphy's Law;-P Can't wait to see the new hat!!!! And, I love hearing from you. It's like a little check in with friends.

Larry isn't big on hand-knit hats. He likes really dense hats, like ski hats. Too bad. I'm not going to make him a sweater every Christmas.

I've only intentionally knit Rusty some mukluks and he LOVED them, and then the dog chewed them up. Another pair is on the list... don't know if it'll be Christmas, though. I'll have an extra day if I make them for his birthday.

I figured you were just recuperating from November! :)

Darlin', there is nothing wrong with being out having a life and enjoying yourself in place of blogging. We will come when you update and we don't require photos or massive updates.

I love the hat tradition. Then again, I've been cranking them out lately, so I may just love hats right now. ;^)

In my mind gifting Doug socks would be the ultimate knitter wife show of love. But, I know that guy well and they would sit in the drawer. Enjoy your "unintentional" ways!

It's better that you know what he will and won't use so you can channel your knitting energy into things he will wear!
