Where are they now?
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.
I knit my nieces each a pair of piggy mittens. They got them for Christmas and from my niece up in Snohomish I heard nothing further about them. The niece in town, I didn't really hear anything about them either until her father happened to mention that she wore them every day to school and was devastated that one of them was missing. It was found the next day in the school's lost and found. They're pretty distinctive, so the whole set would have to go missing for them not to be turned in.
Who wouldn't like something that you could play with while wearing?
It would be nice since a majority of my knitting are gift items if I heard back from the giftees that they still are using them or not. I had made my mother a purse when I was first learning how to knit. It was out of this awful to knit with Lion Brand boucle type yarn and really hurt my hands to knit with it. I visited with her a year later and asked her about it, it was buried in her bedroom closet. I hadn't taken a picture of it before sending and was finally getting one. At lease she still had it - right?
Do you see your gifts being worn/used?
