A few years ago my cousin Ben got stuck with me in our Davis family Christmas gift swap. Being the serious snowboarder that he was, he knitted (crocheted?) me a red winter hat, which obviously had a sick visor element and ear flaps. Tre hip. Seems other boarders have the knitting bug too. Check out these clever goods by Krochet Kids International.
They do laptop cases, of course.
And nerdy-cute little bow ties.
Thanks to Ash at Two Cheap (soon to be Three, Cheap) for the tip!
