Well, my first FO ever - a few weeks ago - was a scarf for my DH. It was all garter stitch with 2 strands held together and done with Homespun (color: Fiesta). He wouldn't model it so I did! He loves this scarf and it was very easy to make.

The Palindrome is the most masculine scarf I have seen. I just love it. It's so easy to knit. The big advantage of this scarf is that it is completely reversible. He should like that!!! Good luck choosing.
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?

I am currently making the Besotted Scarf for my dad - http://www.helloyarn.com/besottedcarf.htm - its really not that hard if you just follow the pattern closely to make sure you do your cable crossings the right way each time, and I think it is looking really nice.
