He doesn't ask for much

David asked me to make him this hat. Urban Outfitters sold a nasty acrylic one a few years ago and my husband wanted a wool one. He never asks for anything, so I made it.
It's lined with merino wool and the colorwork was rough, thrifted tapestry wool. My only regret is that I didn't make it in John Deere colors. My husband is gay for John Deere. Ask anyone.

I'm going to be using the fornicating deer on a hat for myself- I love the pattern.

Your husband is "gay for John Deere"? I don't know what you mean by that but I hope it's not yet another perjorative use of the word "gay"...I expect you to be more sensitive than that.

BTW, awesome fair isle work on that hat.

I always ask my husband what I can make for him and he says nothing. I think you've made the one thing he'd really like me to make for him!
