It’s Raining Men in July

Men have been on my mind for a couple of weeks and I had a couple of orders come in so I couldn’t give them the attention my mind wanted to. But now those orders are out and men are back in my thoughts.

July will be the month I concentrate on them and produce items that would be great for a girl to buy a guy (and then borrow) or for a guy to buy for himself.


This is my take on the Lake Tahoe beanie. I’ve done the pattern for those that might want to knit up some of these for holiday gifts.I’m not sure what the yarn is – sorry.





I’ve done this hat before and it is made for a guy. There’s a guy modeling the end result in the pattern. It is making a guy comeback though it really looks good on girls, too. This is also Red Heart With Love in Merlot.



This scarf is done in mistake ribbing and the texture is perfect for a guy. Not sure of the color but it feels like it’s I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby. 100% acrylic worsted weight 355 yards.




When this ball of yarn showed up, I wasn’t that thrilled with it and it sat in the stash for a good, long time. Not as long as some of the others but it lanquished for a bit. When I picked it up, it was clear it wanted to be a hat and so I did a basic beanie and it came out really well. I didn’t know it was a striping yarn so if fit in with the striping thing I had going on and fits with the guy thing. Mr. Honey says it has the right coloring that a guy would wear it. So I didn’t stick a pom-pom on it.

I finished this project while I was in Michigan for a conference. This yarn is discontinued.  Universal Classic Worsted LP Harvest 80% acrylic 20% wool  worsted weight 197 yards.

WP_20160703_12_02_02_ProI started this beanie the other day and I am really enjoying it. It screams out for a man to buy it and I can see me making a quarter of a ton of these to load up in the shop. Of course, a woman can rock it, too but I am thinking of men this month. I can imagine it in a bunch of colors – both solids and ombres. This is Red Heart with Love.
