I am going to post this since my husband never would. 
This is his second FO, but his first Hat!
He not only did it on circular needles, he then transfered to DPNs, which he had never worked on before.  And TAA DAA!! A hat was born!!

Haha awesome, did you teach him how to knit? I've been trying to convince my boyfriend to take up knitting so he can knit me a scarf (so *i* won't have to go through 5 feet of knitting hehe) - so far it's been unsuccessful hehe. Anyway that looks great for a 2nd FO. I'm trying to imagine what a yarn stash would look like if two people contributed to it  Cheesy

He took a class with me a few months ago when I was in a crochet slump.  Only he retained the info long after I did.  He took a while to get a finished project since he kept wanting to experiment with different sized needles and different types of yarn.
As for our stash, it is getting bigger very quickly now!  But I have noticed that he prefers the shmancy yarn, not the run of the mill Wal-mart stuff I usually buy.  So on the plus side I get lots of Organic Cotton yarn,  Cashmerino, Baby Alpaca, etc.  Works out well for me!

Your husband did such a great job! Brownie points for him being yarn selective since it benefits you as well.

I've showed my husband both crochet and knitting. He prefers knitting but hasn't sat down for a second lesson. It must be a guy thing to want to learn how to make it their own right away?

Let's put the FUN back in dysfunctional!!

i'm so jealous! i tried to teach my boyfriend how to knit.. he doesn't have the attention span! he was addicted to World of Warcraft for a while (like.. a year. bad times) and i tried to make a deal with him: for every hour or WoW, half an hour of knitting. It never really worked... Sad at least he quit Wow!!!

I remember when the hubby was hooked on Everquest.  I could've killed him on a nightly basis.  Thank god he doesn't play anymore!

He is currently working on a new hat that he is testing out with ribbing.  He is doing all this pattern free!  Which for me boggles my mind since he is new to decreasing and DPNs and well knitting.  At least as a crocheter I have a foundation of understanding that I can pull from, he doesn't.  He just makes it up as he goes.

Great hat! Wish I could get DH to knit, then maybe he would stop complaining every time I pick up my needles.
