Jack (my preteen son): Mum can you knit me a beard?
Me: A what?
Jack: A beard. They are all the rage on YouTube
After trawling the net, I found a free pattern. Jack was right - they are everywhere! I even saw an actor wearing one on a TV show. I decided to knit it in a colour (out of my scraps) that tones in with his hair. Also I only used acrylic yarn so it isn't itchy. It knitted up in about an hour! I sewed elastic so it stays on his head.
Jack loves wearing it especially in the evenings and as a surprise for his friends. He says it keeps his face warm. I always do a double take when I see him. It is hilarious!
Have you knitted or crafted anything that is purely just for a laugh?
Thanks for dropping by...
