Last year when I gave my oldest son Chris a Noro Striped Scarf, he asked for a black one. In the last couple of weeks, I finally finished it. The picture is really poor because I haven't mastered photographing black and it was dark.
Chris had very definite ideas about the size of the stripes and the distance between them. He was really excited to get it (and wore it out of the house when he left even though he was wearing scrubs). Then he said the next one he wanted to be brown.
Next one? :) Thankfully he realizes he'll have to wait a year like he did for this one!
I'm glad I haven't made him a sweater!
