Hubby and His Hanukkah Hat

The story starts when I decided to follow Monikita's tradition of knitting her husband a hat for Christmas.  Mr. Smith agreed it was a grand tradition and that he'd like a nice warm beanie to keep his ears warm in frosty weather.  His choice was Fortnight, which I hoped would not take me a fortnight to knit.


On the 3rd night of Hanukkah I finished, and since it was a cold and snowy night, I presented the hat to Mr. Smith just as he was leaving to walk our Moxiedog. The next morning I found it propped up against the menorah (which was such a sweet way to say he loved it).


Mr. Smith is very happy with the way the design covers his ears and protects the back of his neck. He is very happy with the color and the softness of the Shepherd's Wool.  He is not, however, happy with the prospect of having his picture taken. 

Happy Hanukkah, Mr. Smith and a Merry Christmas, too!

Great looking hat! Have a beautiful Holiday also!

I've not seen that pattern and may well need to make it for myself. It looks quite fetching on Smith, too.

I love the hat! I may have to start up the same tradition with Miah.

Lovely Mr. Smith and his new hat too!
Belated Happy Chanukah and Merry Christmas to both of you.

I love this hat pattern! Looks great on your beloved hubby.

Really great hat. And a lovely tradition...may have to start making my hubby one each year for Christmas.

GREAT hat! And it looks just perfect on Smith. (And, WoW! That's a whole lotta comments!)

Great Hat! I'm ashamed at how long it's been since I read a knitting blog..I think it's time to change that habit.
As always Mr. Smith looks great in his hat..
Sending warm wishes for a great holiday!

What a nice thing to do for your husband, I love that he put it by the menorah.

Love it! I'm keeping this one in mind for my husband.

It suits him! Glad you have established a new tradition in your knitting.

Thanks for posing, Mr. Smith! Great hat and it looks good on you, too! Happy Christmas and Merry Hanukkhah to you both (and, wee Moxie, too)!!!!!!! Any snow??

What an excellent tradition--and excellent hat, too. I like the very edge in a contrast color. I do believe it's in my queue now! Thanks. Wishing you both happy holidays and a spectacular new year

Aw...I miss Smith's great smile. Give him a mulligan and make him smile! Nice goin' on the good-lucking hat.

That is a great looking hat! Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah!

It's PERFECT for him! And what a great looking hat. Smith looks absolutely fetching in it! Love to both of you!

Lovely hat!

Nice hat, great picture! Have a good holiday!

I haven't seen that pattern. I'd like to try it. I love your tradition! Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!

Those misters -- they just don't like us taking their pictures! Mr. Smith and his hat both look great!

Happy Chanukah and Merry Christmas to both of you.

Awesome job on that hat! And what a good sport Smith is to have his picture taken - and posted! Enjoy your all your holidays!

Love the hat! It's a great pattern and looks great on Marshall. Jeff's been trying to get me to make a hat for him, but haven't gotten around to it, yet. He was very jealous when he saw this. :)

Great hat - and definitely a sweet way to show he liked it. :)

Happy holidays to the both of you!

A beautiful pattern & a great knitting job!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
