Very Predictable

Ever since I learned how to knit, I've knit my dad winter accessories for Christmas. Usually a scarf, sometimes with an accompanying hat. And this year is no different.

This is a modified Irish Hiking Scarf (2 cables instead of 3), knit out of some pretty brown Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Chunky, which has been sadly discontinued. I was originally planning to knit both a scarf and a hat, but I miscalculated when I bought the yarn (and since it's discontinued, it's not like I could easily find more) so he's just getting a slightly longer scarf. Ah well.

Maybe next year I can come up with something different. One can only have so many brown/gray/black scarves, right? =)

Wow! I really like that scarf! That yarn looks very luxurious. Too bad they discontinued it though.

It's kinda funny the sorts of colours we pick out for our dads. All the things I've knit for my dad are in browns, greys, or blacks - very "manly" colours. But what if he really wants a bright red scarf or something?! HAHAHA! Maybe next year I'll try orange or something, just to shake things up.

Bright red would be awesome! Maybe that should be our goal next year, to make our dads some COLOURFUL things. =)
