For the Dads

As another Father's Day approaches I began to ponder my gift options. Finding things to make for a man always seems somehow harder. My mind was a blank and I've been making presents for so long that I couldn't possibly buy a gift. What would people think ;)

After much deliberation and male interrogation I settled on a few ideas. There are plenty of knit and crochet options for all these so whichever your preference, you'll be sure to find something for that special man :)

Knit and Crochet Father

Good old socks - sure to please if you have the time to make them.

Tie - something a little different and could be made to match a pair of socks.

Tablet case - always useful as most men have some form of gadget that needs protection from bangs, scrapes or sticky little fingers.

Cup cozy and coaster in one - protect your furniture and keep the coffee warm in style.

Beer hugger - for those who prefer their drinks cold, a can or bottle hugger will stop those chilly fingers.

Guitar Strap - personalised style for those musical Dads.

Scarf - a little warm for the summer weather but will certainly come in for those colder days.

Dish cloth - a cheeky little present for all those who enjoy a bit of housework.

Sewing Father

If you need something quick and prefer a bit of sewing, the PurlBee have instructions for handkerchiefs, a wallet, a quilted laptop sleeve or tie. Make them as bright and cheerful as you dare.

Only a month to go to Father's day so better get busy. Happy making :)
