Christmas In July #1

Well, are we all ready to start thinking about Christmas Gifts?  Or at least to start making our gift lists?  I hope you will be able to find some ideas here that will help you out, needless to say I don't think y'all will be able to finish a bunch of these gifts now.  But you will at least be able to bookmark these ideas and then be ready to make them when  you have free time.

To start off we are going to come up with some ideas for probably the hardest person to make things for.  The men in your life.  Whether it is your husband, your father, your son whomever it is, men seem to be the hardest to satisfy.  So I am going to give you a few projects to look over and see if there is something you can use, I certainly hope there is.

This first one is for a sweater:
Big Man's Sweater
This is a very simple pullover with a chest measurement of 56", but of course that can be changed by using a different size hook.
Mens Cardigan
This cardigan is for a mens size 48" chest, and again hook size can be adjusted.

Mens Vest
This vest is sized for a 44" chest and again adjust hook for different sizing.
Newsboy Cap
This cap is a favorite with the teenager girls as well as boys.

Earflap Cap
This cap is a favorite with all ages, it is amazing what just a little yarn color change can do.
