A certain parent of mine has a very big birthday next week. I wanted to knit him a little something special, and decided on a hat to match the scarf I made him for Christmas. However, after I was done, I remembered that he has to wear a hardhat for much of his day, so a hat probably wasn’t the most useful gift.
So, I also knitted a matching ear warmer…because my OCD would accept no less than covering all contingencies.
And then I made my kid model them so I could take pictures.
Don’t worry, I paid him in brownies.
