In the knitting world there is a phenomenon knows as “the curse”. Basically, the curse states that if you knit something for your boyfriend, he will dump you. This luckily is not the moral of this post, but it is why after a year of knitting and three years of dating G I have finally picked up the needles for him. Besides the dreaded curse, I avoid knitting things for G because as an architecture student he has an eye for design and is very nit-picky. But lately with him going to Germany soon for 6 months I’ve been a sucker so I knit him a hat and I finished Raleigh Hills yesterday (Ravelry project link here). Unfortunately I sent him home with it before I could get a picture, bummer. It came out a bit big, but he said he’d put it in the dryer and I bet it will fit just fine. So now I’m onto another project for him, I’m knitting the Astrodome hat and scarf in a gray, red and black color scheme (his favorite colors). I don’t think it’ll look girly in that color scheme, I think it will turn out quite manly.
