Knitted Tie

At the library where I work, one of those coincidences where everybody is wearing the same color shirt, led to all of the employees who work Monday nights declaring that Mondays are now Teal Mondays. About a month after that, the library hired a new employee (really he was already an employee just go hired for a new job) who started working Monday nights, and he didn’t have anything teal to wear! We probably could have found him a teal men’s dress shirt if we really tried, but I can’t see him wearing anything other than a basic white dress shirt, it would be too wild for him, so we all joked that he needed a teal tie. Can you see where this is going? I realized I had some nice teal yarn that would work just great, so I decided to knit him a tie.

So I searched on Ravelry (love that site!) and found this. It is nice and simple and I love seed stitch, so it was just perfect.

Because I don’t work Monday nights, except the occasional time I fill in for someone else, I don’t get to see him wearing the tie, but one of my co-workers took a picture for me!

Looks pretty happy with the tie, doesn’t he? 🙂
