He doesn’t have a facebook page or a twitter account (although he does have Instagram!), so if you see him around today, tell Wheat HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
I hope that your day is full of golf, football, Juin, fall weather, and all the sweets – I even promise not to make any sweet tooth comments! Love you!!
And in case anyone is interested in some really great guy gifts, Wheat was thrilled with his this morning. :) He got a new pair of briar britches from Kevin’s for his upcoming pheasant hunting trip to North Dakota (not pictured) already, but today he awoke to a Yeti cooler cup (also from Kevin’s), a shotgun shell carrier from Sturdy Brothers (not for sale online, but they’ll have them at Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival again this year!), a Sturdy Brothers Sturdy Square (a pocket square or handkerchief), and a Bixby beard comb I also picked up at our Maiden South pop up at Sturdy Brothers last week. I may or may not hope this encourages him to grow his beard again…
Not (completely) pictured is the blaze orange hat Wheat requested for his North Dakota trip. I’m still working on it! But Harold is obviously a huge help when it comes to hand knitted gifts.
Just in case any knitters are interested, the yarn is a superwash worsted by Sweet Georgia (colorway: Dutch) that I purchased at (where else?) Fuzzy Goat. For those of you not near Thomasville, you can find it online directly from Sweet Georgia Yarns here. The pattern is the same one I knitted for my dad last year (and for Wheat last year using Spud & Chloe Sweater in Penguin). You can find the pattern in my Ravelry projects here – and find & friend me on Ravelry @ oystersandpurls!
