Day 4: Where are they now?

Inspired by...

Day 4: Whatever happened to your __________?

Write about the fate of a past knitting project. Whether it be something that you crocheted or knitted for yourself or to give to another person. An item that lives with you or something which you sent off to charity.

There are a lot of different aspects to look at when looking back at a knitting project and it can make for interesting blogging, as much of the time we blog about items recently completed, new and freshly completed. It is not so often that we look back at what has happened to these items after they have been around for a while.

How has one of your past knits lived up to wear. Maybe an item has become lost. Maybe you spent weeks knitting your giant-footed dad a pair of socks in bright pink and green stripes which the then ‘lost’. If you have knit items to donate to a good cause, you could reflect on the was in which you hope that item is still doing good for it’s owner or the cause it was made to support.
It's taken a year and a half, but I've finally found a way to wear my Wrenna lace cardigan:

(no, ok, I'm not wearing it in the picture - I'm having a bad hair day)

With a big shawl pin from Jannette's Rare Yarns this cardigan *does* just about stay on (over a jumper). Still not sold on it for me, it's just too big, but I love the pattern and the yarn colour - anyone got some broader shoulders?

With thanks to Eskimimi for hosting :)

  1. Pretty color! Love the pin, too.

  2. What a shame you aren't particularly happy with this. It's really pretty and I love the shawl pin. I'm tempted to add this to my queue as I have swimmers shoulders.

  3. What a terrible pity that you don't like it! Rip and reknit? It looks like it's got such great potential!
