Deer Hunting Surprise
Caution! The following content may not be appropriate for all readers.
One of my bosses, an avid deer hunter, has been asking for a blaze orange hat for some time now. Little did he know that I’ve had this particular pattern in mind for him for an even longer time!
Apparently my boss’ lucky hunting shirt lost all of its luck when he wore it to find out the sex of his first child. Here’s hoping that this hat can bring him some luck in the deer stand.
This hat just wasn’t complete until I added the biggest pom pom that I could possibly make.
Sweetie and I are giving this hat to him after work on Friday. We can’t wait to see his reaction!
