Since I'm not really a knitter or crocheter I have trouble sometimes coming up with things I can make for my husband and sons. My husband really gets a kick out of crafts done just for him, but it takes a little more work to come up with 'manly' rather than 'cute.'
One year he bought me a copy of Cynthia Treen's book Last Minute Fabric Gifts. So I made him this scarf:
It's made out of a nice brown wool herringbone that was a suit jacket in its first life. The fringes are a cream wool yarn. It was pretty easy (except that the fringes took WAY longer than I had anticipated). It looks nicer in real life than in this picture, honest.
Bethany mentioned that she has a slick way to make kid ties from men's ties and I'm excited to try it. But I want to see some more man crafts! Bring yours out and post it!
