Where are they now?

Knits of the past... What happens to all the pretty things we knit? Do they get worn to death? Or shoved in the back of a drawer? I think it's fun to hear how things wear over time so here is my little report. Back in 2004 I knit a Mini Sweater. I didn't wear the poor thing very much because the yarn was sorta stretchy and it hung around my ribcage after one wear.

Well, this week I finally got around to re-sewing the button into a more fitting position and yay!!! We have functional knitwear! I wore it to work on Tuesday... See?
Mini Sweater!
Super cool!

Also... I have been thinking a lot lately about what I like to knit. More specifically about what type of WIPs I have. I tend to have a lot of projects going at once, but I think it's because I like such a wide variety of knitting types.
  • I like to have a lace project in case the lace bug bites. Right now that lace project is Print O' the Wave.
  • I like to have a project being made for someone else. Currently, I am knitting Eric's mom a hat in Malabrigo Chunky. Mmmmmm. So soft!
  • I like to have a large project. That would be my Indigo Ripples skirt. I kinda stalled on that for a bit, but I'm excited to start it up again! I'm right a the beginning of the lace.
  • I also like to have a scarf on the needles. Right now, I don't have a scarf in progress!?!? I'll have to remedy that by starting the Interstate Scarf. I wonder how Valerie's progressing on hers? I think a hat would fit this niche too... Hmmm... Koolhaas out of Malabrigo? Yes. I think so.
  • And finally, I would like to start having a sock in progress at all times. I really love the Monkey socks I knit myself and you seriously can't beat a sock for portable knitting.
Ok... enough of my crazed, obsessive knit speak. Time to go to sleep! Good night!
