A friend of ours turned 40 yesterday and my husband suggested that as a present, I knit our friend a beanie and beard! His business means he spends most of his day outdoors, so the idea is that it will keep him warm – chin and all!!
I then attached a piece of cocoon through each end of the beard and tied it to the inside of the beanie, so our friend could remove the beard and still wear a nice beanie after the initial laughs!
It was nice to complete a project within a week!
Now it’s back to the poncho. I thought it was nearly finished but I think it needs to be bigger still.
