John has been wearing the scarf I knit him a year ago and he seems to like it a lot. He requested some nice, thick mittens to wear. We settled on these convertible mitts. He didn't like that these are "girl" gloves, but, c'mon. Do they look like a girly glove? Didn't think so. :)
The large size fit him perfectly without any mods. I guess I did shorten the thumbs by one row, but that's because I'm really paranoid about baggy thumbs. Nothing worse than a pair of gloves or mittens with baggy thumbs, right?
In any case, he hasn't worn them yet, though they've been done for probably a week...the coldest week in two years...but I don't think it will take a year to get him to put them on. :) Do people wear what you knit for them?
