A few weeks ago I knit my husband gloves from the Viking Yarn he bought.
The gloves only used about half the skein, so I decided to make a hat out of the rest. I wasn’t sure how much yarn I had or how much I needed, so I made the hat top down, using the gloves as a swatch to base my stitch counts on.
Hubby loves his hat and I love him in it. Win-win .
Several weeks ago my husband came into the yarn store with me and bought some Viking of Norway yarn. With his own money. Can we just stop and savor that for a moment ?
He told me he wanted half-finger gloves. I can do that (I used this pattern). I knit the whole first glove in one day (it was my day off), and the second glove only took me 2 more days to make. I call that a fast project.
He calls them hobo gloves, but I keep reminding him that most hobos don’t wear handknits.
I guess he’s a Viking Hobo now.
