FO: mitt by hubby
This is great.

I've been knitting for a month or two and my DH expressed only mild interest in my new hobby until I started my Irish Hiking Scarf. All of a sudden he became terribly interested in cables, and set about to make some of his own. Enter my new fingerless mitt:



Not too shabby for his first knitting project, eh? I'm worried that he's lost momentum, however; I want my second mitt! I'm wearing the first one now. It's fun. I also hope he can remember what he did for the cables, since he just winged it.

I am impressed. I've got my significant other knitting - he started with a plain scarf and stopped. You're lucky to have half a pair of mittens! Maybe if I tell mine that some other guy started with cables, he'll get that male competitive streak going and finish the scarf.

Tell your husband it looks great and now we want to see the other one.

Would it motivate your SO to tell him that he wanted to sew my wedding dress, too? We talked him out of that one just in time...

He definitely likes the attention, btw.

You must be a good teacher 'cause that's a very impressive first project. I can't even get my significant other to take the trash out much less be interested in knitting.
