Or more precisely, like hats?

I am in the midst of my knitting-Christmas-gifts-for-everyone-haze and I found some nice dark blue heavy worsted weight yarn that would be prefect for a stocking cap...for a guy I recently started dating. But now I'm having second thoughts. Is it okay to start this, and give it to my ever-loving daddy if it doesn't work out, or should I perhaps wait until Valentines Day?

If you have to ask, don't do it.

I think that's going to be my new mantra in this section of the forums...

And welcome!

I've made my boyfriend tons of hats. I don't think there's a curse for a quick easy project. Just ones that you pour your heart into.

I haven't had problems with hats, scarfs, or socks. But, we talked first and I got a feeling for whether or not he'd wear what I made for him, or if he was just being nice.

I made a hat for a good friend that became a boyfriend post-hat and a hat for a then boyfriend. I went over the details with them of what they wanted and had them pick out their own yarn. I can tell you, the then boyfriend didn't become an ex because of the hat (though I did hate seeing on the floor under his futon in a pile of dust).

Does he wear hats? If you are really worried you could just knit it and plan on it being for anyone you forgot. If he sees it and likes it give it to him, if not give it to someone else.

I had a bald boyfriend once and he wanted a hat that he saw on a tv show (NYPD Blue). So, I showed him some patterns and they were all wrong according to him. When he looked at the hat again on the show, he said it was leather, so he didn't want me to make him one. Too bad, his loss.

Alright, dear ones, the post-Christmas tell-all.

I knit my sweetie a hat. And then hats for his boys, who are three and six. The day after Christmas, I was driving by his place and saw a familiar figure, and two little ones, all wearing their hats! Which was very reassuring, 'cause the boys' mother was there too! (first time meeting her...oy!)

So, the love hats worked out fine (three, because when you're dating a guy with kids, you date the kids, too. I love them all)

I knit my guy a hat as well, and immediately his mother wanted me to make her one too! So, two hats (and three scarves later) all is still well!
