So he got a few smaller projects this year.
A simple watch hat in some of hand dyed gradient yarn that Julie and I dyed a little while ago. I used a greyish natural color as the yarn base and Wilton's True Blue (maybe? I don't remember exactly which blue I used). I love the way it turned out. Matt loves the hat. It's a win/win!
Since I had more yarn left over than expected, I decided to make a simple 1X1 cowl. Also a big winner! The man does like to keep his neck warm!
To top it all off, I was going to make him a simple pair of fingerless mitts, but after some discussion, we decided he would get more wear out of pair of pop over mitts:
I used some left over Blackstone Tweed (used in one of his favorite sweaters: The Cambridge Jacket). I knew he would love how soft and warm this yarn is. He did ask that the thumbs be long, but left open (so he can use his phone). Even easier!
