Fusion knitting

My sweetie is a surfer and I figured I would make him some warm surf gear for when he hits the waves on the chilly west coast. So I knit him this. I sewed a button so that the scarf can stay all tied up while he’s warming up. Originally, it was a deer phalange, but Jax the dog somehow managed to removed the sewn on button and eat it without harming the scarf. So I sawed off a piece of antler, drilled a couple of holes into it, et voila!

Bear Suit

I’m a fairly avid knitter. This is a mostly wool bear suit costume that I knit without a pattern. I did knit a butt flap into it, which unfortunately does not line up when I’m sitting down. However, it is extremely warm and thick, and serves as a wonderful under layer. It took me 3 months to finish. I love to wear it in the woods, when I’m teaching, or just for shits and giggles.
