Handmade Hubby

I made my man some new duds for this winter and I'm thrilled with the way they turned out. I mean doesn't he look handsome? The hat is pretty simple but still exciting because A: I finished it and B: It fits. Usually when knitting I have issues with both of those things.
The shirt I am SUPER proud of. I've been planning on making it since this summer, but kept putting it off. I wanted to make him something that he would really like and want to wear. I used a vintage cowboy shirt pattern and added my own details with the stitching. Anchors on the front and a pirate ship on the back.
He loves them both (or so he says) but I believe him because I've overheard him bragging to his friends.

I get such a feeling of satisfaction from making special things for the ones I love.
