Last Christmas I knit the pattern DH chose, a Charcoal Ribbed Cardigan, using the yarn he chose, Elan Superwash Chunky in maroon. The silver buttons were my surprise to him.
Yesterday, I got a message notice on Ravelry, and discovered a request to use this picture on the pattern page for the cardigan. DH agreed that he would be honored, too, and so when you look up the Charcoal Ribbed Cardigan you see DH. He’s the handsome guy just above the model picture that was published in Interweave Knits.
This year I knit a scarf for him, using the yarn he chose, Knit Picks Swish DK in garnet heather. Do you see a trend here? I think I needn’t ask him about color again…he seems happy with maroon.
